I loved that during my four years at ACU I was actively involved in University life.

In my Business degree, I majored in Accounting and Human Resource Management. I believe that managing the accounts, and the relationships with staff and clients, is crucial to operating a successful business.

All Business undergraduate students are required to undertake a professional experience unit.

Senior Accountant at Pitcher Partners, Newcastle & Hunter. My role as an Auditor requires me to obtain reasonable assurance that my clients’ financial statements are free of material error and fraud. I am responsible for managing audit engagements and supervising Graduate Accountants.

ACU's Bachelor of Business is designed in accordance with the accreditation requirements of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ). This ensured I could commence the Chartered Accountants (CA) program upon completing my undergraduate degree.

My attendance at ACU strengthened my technical, written and soft skills.

Yes. At age 15, I was inspired by books and documentaries on innovation and entrepreneurship. I believed that accounting would be a suitable career as it is the foundation of every business. This is my dream job.

I have completed the postgraduate Chartered Accountants (CA) Program. The CA Program is one of the most respected business qualifications in the world.
