Accounting in Context - ACCG399

This capstone unit brings together the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the accounting program and looks forward to professional work or study. The unit's research and practice-based topics will equip students to enter into the accounting programs offered by CPA Australia and the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ), or to undertake postgraduate studies. The objective of the unit is to critically evaluate accounting information and accounting standards through an understanding of the different theoretical and philosophical approaches to accounting. It assists in developing students' professional judgement and reflective capacity and develops graduate capabilities, particularly analytical, critical and interpersonal skills. Furthermore, the various assessment tasks of this unit will enable students to reflect on the development of the graduate capabilities and how these have been achieved throughout their degree.
