Graduates of the Master of International Accounting course would typically seek employment in areas of accounting such as financial accounting, auditing, taxation, management accounting, public sector accounting, forensic accounting, or business advisory services. The course will provide graduates with the opportunity to work in a wide range of different environments, depending on their own skills and preferences. Accountants can choose to work in large, medium or small public practice firms, industry and commerce, government and public sector organisations, management consultancies, banking and financial services, not-for-profit organisations (NPOs) or educational organisations. Many also set up their own businesses.
Given the fundamental shift of accountants towards a wide-ranging advisory role, career opportunities are also becoming available in other vocations including working as financial planners, investment advisers, market analysts, tax consultants, advisers in mergers and acquisitions, in corporate recovery and insolvency, treasury banking, e-commerce or information technology.
