Why Study Accounting Online?
Accounting is a dynamic and exciting profession in today’s global business environment. Accounting has seen a major shift in recent decades – from focusing on financial accountability to a more complex role within business organisations and management.
- Critical business decisions always come down to the numbers. Accountants are analysts, advisors and decision makers.
- Diverse career opportunities exist in public accounting practices, corporations (small and large), audit firms, government and not-for-profit organisations.
Online accounting courses are a path to professional accreditation with the CA, CPA, IPA and ACCA. You can meet academic requirements by studying online from home or work.
