Why choose Accounting?
Far more than just number-crunchers, accountants often hold high-level management positions where financial control, decision making, legal compliance and leadership skills are essential.
Accounting is a common language of business and underpins almost all business and organisational activities. Financial accountants process and communicate financial information for all stakeholders; management accountants prepare data for management decisions; tax accountants provide tax compliance advice, and auditors check the financial reporting of organisations. Commercial law and how it relates to the conduct of business in New Zealand is also relevant to accountants. Study accounting at Waikato and any of these careers are possible.
Learn from the best at a school where the academic requirements of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA), CPA Australia or ACCA accountancy professional institutions can be met with an appropriate selection of papers.
