The GradCertAcct, first offered in 2010, is specially developed for “non- accounting and finance” degree holders to acquire accounting knowledge and skills at the postgraduate level for them to have a good working knowledge and competency in the discipline, and for them to gain admission as an associate of, and qualify as a professional accountant of the society of Certified Practising Accountants (CPA), Australia. The GradCertAcct may also qualify students, subject to applicable regulations, for admission as student associates of other professional accountancy bodies.
Additionally, accountancy and finance knowledge and skills are growing in importance and recognition as a component essential to proper management in both the public and private sectors globally, and non-accounting and finance graduates are increasingly drawn to the reward and satisfaction of a career in these fields of expertise whether they are professionally qualified or not. In essence, the GradCertAcct provides the opportunity for such graduates to extend their competence and confidence to develop successful and lucrative careers in accountancy.
