Bachelor of Commerce – Professional Accounting with the degree of a Bachelor of Professional Practice

Our new Bachelor of Commerce – Professional Accounting with the degree of a Bachelor of Professional Practice offers students the opportunity to participate in Macquarie’s cooperative education program (Co-op). This highly competitive course will see students alternate between classroom studies and workplace experience in the form of three work placements of three to six months each throughout their course. Co-op students will develop professional skills and networks across different workplace settings and use their practical experiences in the classroom.
