SVKM’s Institute of International Studies, in collaboration with the University of Canberra, is conducting an integrated degree program for Bachelor of Accounting & Master of Business Administration.
In collaboration with the University of Canberra, Australia, the Institute of International Studies (IIS) is offering an exciting opportunity for students! The integrated bachelor’s and master’s degree program is an excellent opportunity for students to study abroad for pursuing their bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
This is a unique program where the student completes first 2 years at SVKM’s IIS, Mumbai and 1 year at University of Canberra, Australia for Bachelor’s Degree, followed by one and half year for their Master’s degree at University of Canberra, Australia. The program has two components – a Bachelor of Accounting and a Master of Business Administration. The first part involves a comprehensive and integrated set of units that are designed to shape students into professional accountants. These units will help in developing the technical and professional skills in accounting, auditing, law, finance, and related areas. The second part is when the students undertake the MBA course where the focus will be redirected to the development of managerial skills along with an emphasis on entrepreneurship.
SVKM’s Institute of International Studies (IIS) is a pioneering institution which uses integrated e-learning methodology in its course delivery and has created niche for itself among the SVKM institutes.
What makes this course such a great opportunity for students is that accounting is one of the few fields that is recession-proof. In fact, there is always an increasing demand in the profession. As per a recent survey conducted by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for accountants and auditors is expected to grow by 11%. This statistic is higher than the national average for all occupations in the forecasted period 2014-2024. Based on these factors and the highly specialized nature of this course, students will have an edge over their contemporaries.
This integrated degree program is accredited by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) and CPA Australia. This course will offer a smooth transition to MBA after graduation and will pave the way for students to apply for a 2-year work visa after completing 2 years of study in Australia.
The program culminates in a series of interviews hosted by Canberra-based accounting firms, with successful candidates going on to secure internships. Previous accounting students have undertaken internships and cadetships with organizations including International IDEA, Legal Aid ACT, eChoice, Boyce Chartered Accountants, Maxim Chartered Accountants and Chartered Accountants ANZ (CAANZ). This course is truly beneficial to students and will help in transforming them into true global citizens.
