Melbourne Business School

Master of Management Accounting


The Master of Management (Accounting) provides a foundation in accounting, economics, management and quantitative methods. It is available in two options:

  • A three year (part-time) course which accelerates students’ entry into their new career.
  • A four year (part-time) course which offers opportunities for cross disciplinary studies

All students complete a specialist core to develop their knowledge and skills in financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing,
taxation, corporate finance and accounting information systems.

Both courses are certified by CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia. Successful completion prepares students to apply for entry to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia (ICAA) or the Certified Practising Accountant (CPA) professional studies program.

Please note: International students must undertake graduate programs on a full-time basis if in Australia on a student visa.
This program is therefore not available to international students.
