Accountants in the Profession - ACCG315

This unit integrates the materials that are covered in first and second year accounting and business law units, applying these materials to an environment where accounting graduates become professionals. The objectives of the unit are to consolidate and investigate the factors and contextual issues that influence the competitive business environment for an accountant. The unit is not only reflective and integrative, but also future-focused, offering opportunities for ‘real world’ preparatory experience in the accounting profession. The class is conducted through workshops and discussions where students learn to develop personal and professional skills in sustaining a professional profile in business and the profession. It provides opportunities for students to engage with the community through panels from professional accounting bodies, community groups, NGO’s, MQ alumni, public sector and commercial organisations, and others. The unit requires students to interact with the industry partners in order to complete a major research project under the supervision of a faculty member. Students are also exposed to case studies which present realistic, complex, and contextually rich situations and involve dilemmas, conflicts, and/ or problems accountants face in the profession, which allows to understand emergent issues for the accounting professionals.
