    Gary Myers

    Master of Professional Accounting - Master of Business Administration

    The list of job opportunities is almost endless if you have both an MBA and MPA. The best thing about the JCU MPA-MBA course is the opportunity to attend university in the tropics. It is a fantastic place to live and work. Also, JCU accepted my work experience and previous university experiences for advanced standing.

    For anyone who is looking for accounting and business knowledge with a practical side to it, this is the perfect course. The lecturers and the student association are really helpful. Whatever you study at JCU, you will be able to use it in the practical world, so it’s a great opportunity.

    Dr Dale Wadeson

    Accounting and Finance

    The great thing about accounting and business administration is that the vast majority of students have gained employment by the last year of their degree. I have seen many rise to senior ranks, or overseas after they complete their professional accreditation, a testament to them, and to the strength of our program.
