Why study Bachelor of Business (Accounting) and Bachelor of Business (Banking and Finance)?

Monash's double degree, Bachelor of Business (Accounting) and Bachelor of Business (Banking and Finance) will give you a thorough understanding of the economy and business, beyond the daily management of an organisation.

As well as giving you the practical skills you need to be successful in your chosen career, this course will give you the opportunity to grow your critical-thinking skills and increase your capacity to analyse complex problems and develop solutions for them. This means you'll head out into the workforce with the ability to improve the way the world operates.

Our degree offers six core units that introduce you to the key principles of business and you will complete a ten unit major in accounting and a ten unit major in banking and finance, as well as eight open electives.

ACCOUNTING

Accounting is the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions. It can be done on a large scale - for international corporations - or for individuals or for any sized business in-between. There are agreed national and international rules and regulations that govern the work of accountants. Accounting allows a company to analyse its financial performance, and report important statistics such as profit and loss to managers and shareholders.
