The Accounting and Finance ATAR course focuses on financial literacy and aims to provide students with the knowledge, understandings and a range of skills that enables them to make sound financial judgements. Students develop an understanding that financial decisions have far reaching consequences for individuals and business. The course will provide students with the understanding of the systems and processes through which financial practices and decision making are carried out, as well as the ethical, social and environmental issues involved.

Through the preparation, examination and analysis of a variety of financial documents and systems, students develop an understanding of the fundamental principles and practices upon which accounting and financial management are based. An understanding and application of these principles and practices enables students to analyse their own financial data and that of businesses and make informed decisions, forecasts of future performance, and recommendations based on that analysis.

  • Students may have the opportunity to attend the Student Business Conference organised by Engaging Education and held at Murdoch University or another similar excursion.

In this course I learnt how to understand financial information which was very beneficial as I hope to one day pursue a career in business. It introduced me to the different aspects of business policies and procedures that provides a building block for my future studies.
