The Graduate Diploma of Professional Accounting enables students to complete an accounting qualification to continue their professional education. Accounting is the language of business, and skills are relevant to many areas of professional interest: marketing, economic forecasting, finance, engineering and many others. A knowledge of accounting and finance can help individuals and business organisations understand how to use money and resources to the best advantage. Gaining and maintaining wealth are important elements in a market economy.
The course builds on the skills and knowledge acquired in the Graduate Certificate. It further develops the analytical and creative skills necessary when dealing with accounting and finance issues within planning and decision making.
