SVKM’s Institute of International Studies with University of Canberra, Australia

Institute of International Studies (IIS) has collaborated with the University of Canberra to offer integrated Bachelors and Masters program. In these unique programs, the first two years are conducted at the SVKM campus, Mumbai and the remaining two and half years at University of Canberra, Australia. A pioneering institution with its integrated e-learning methodology in its course delivery, IIS has created a niche for itself among the SVKM institutes.

The available University of Canberra degrees offered are:

    • Bachelor of Accounting, and
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The program has two major components, a Bachelor of Accounting and a Master of Business Administration. In the first part, students will study a comprehensive and integrated set of units designed to produce professional accountants. These units will develop students’ technical and professional skills in accounting, law, auditing, finance and related areas, such as statistics and economics. When students enter the MBA, the focus will shift to the development of managerial skills with an emphasis on entrepreneurship.

Integrated Bachelor of Accounting and Master of Business Administration Program

Why choose this course?

Accounting is one such field which has never been in recession, on the contrary its demand has always been increasing. According to a recent survey by the United States Bureau of Labour Statistics, demand for accountants and auditors is expected to grow by 11% which is higher than the national average for all occupations during the decade 2014 to 2024. This integrated 4.5 years Bachelor of Accounting and Master of Business Administration program from University of Canberra will give students an extra edge over their contemporaries.

This course provides an ideal platform for the students to get the best of both worlds, as you will be studying the first 2 years in Mumbai and then complete the next 2.5 years at University of Canberra, Australia.

The benefits of this course are many, the main highlight being a smooth transition to MBA after your graduation. Students get an opportunity to complete their Bachelors and Masters degrees in 4.5 years and be eligible to apply for registration as a Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA). A student will be eligible to apply for a 2-year work visa after completing 2 years of study in Australia.

All of the above make this course a valuable proposition. The innovative teaching and quality education provided with an international context will help the student transform himself into a true global citizen.
