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 3-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.
