    Vilton Crasto

    Master of Professional Accounting

    There were lot of good things about the course. I was lucky and had a class with a group of people from all different nationalities. We had some good guest lecturers who had real life experience in the subjects they taught us, and of course the late evening classes just helped balance study and work life perfectly.

    One of the best feelings as an academic is to see your former students succeed. The vast majority of students have gained employment by the last year of their degree; in this case the competition is between accounting firms for students, not the other way around!
