Bachelor of Business, majoring in Accounting and Financial Advising, now the Bachelor of Commerce
JCU has opened the door for me to start my career in Financial Planning, through education and the placement/scholarship opportunities. The teachers I have encountered during my degree have always gone beyond for my learning whenever I have asked for assistance.
Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Accounting
I work for PwC’s Indigenous Consulting, which is a majority-owned and staffed Indigenous consulting business. It has offices all over Australia. It is partly owned by PwC, which is one of the largest professional services firms in the world. I’ve been with PwC’s Indigenous Consulting for just over five years now.
College of Business, Law and Governance
JCU’s Bachelor of Commerce offers practical, hands-on experience through work-integrated learning. We have amazing support mechanisms available, such as first year coordinators and mentors who will help students get started and succeed in their studies.
Director - Jessups (Audit and Assurance)
Thanks to JCU’s work-integrated learning program, we appreciate that students are work-ready by the time they graduate. And, being a local firm with offices in Cairns and Townsville, it makes perfect sense for us to source our audit graduates from JCU’s North Queensland campuses.
