Bachelor of Business - Accounting

La Trobe University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00115M

This degree will assist students to get an internationally accredited accounting qualification while building a specialisation in a business discipline. First year introduces you to disciplines such as economics, finance and marketing. You'll also complete the first subject of their accounting major. Through this major, you'll build detailed knowledge of financial and management accounting, accounting information systems and auditing and develop project management skills and an awareness of sustainability and public policy, preparing them for careers in areas like taxation, financial management, forensic accounting and business consulting. Alongside these core studies, you can choose from electives including study tours, internships and languages. We offer the option of completing these electives overseas at one of La Trobe's partner universities, which include top business schools like the University of Innsbruck and the Berlin School of Economics.


Students will need to complete at least 360 credit points, at least 270 of which must be in La Trobe Business School subjects. In first year, students will take four business foundation subjects, one accounting discipline-specific subject and three elective subjects. The business foundation subjects, Business Foundations, Accounting and Finance for Business, Business Economics, and Business Analytics, will introduce students to business disciplines and work-ready skills. These skills will be enhanced in second and third year with subjects in Sustainability and Entrepreneurship, respectively. Students will also complete eight core accounting subjects over the degree. This flexible degree also allows students to take an additional eight-subject major, a couple of four-subject minors, including accounting minors not available to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Business (Accounting) degree, or a wide range of elective subjects.
