Why study Accounting at UNE?

If you become a finance and accounting specialist, you will play a key role in managing money for your organisation in the private or public sector. If you want to specialise in another business discipline, a knowledge of accounting will be a great help to you.

Accounting gives you career flexibility—for graduates with accounting qualifications, there are more jobs with a greater range of employers than for any other business discipline. Accounting qualifications are easily transferable from one employer to another (and from one country to another), and many senior managers working in any business discipline hold accounting qualifications and have used them to get the positions they now hold. UNE has been consistently awarded five stars in the Good Universities Guide for student satisfaction. We have excellent student/staff ratios which means our academics have more time to spend with each student, offering you a more personal experience.
