Accounting-Testimonial

Arjun Sharma
Master of Accounting (CPA Extension), Financial Analyst

Accounting at Macquarie gets you ahead in your career

“Macquarie’s integrated program is the best platform to take entry into CPA.

I am working as a financial analyst in a finance firm in Sydney...I think I got this job because of two things: because of my Chartered Accountancy Degree, and because I’m studying at Macquarie. My employer also did his MBA at Macquarie; when he took my interview he straight away said ‘you’re studying at Macquarie—I know you’re a hard worker’. I think that helped me a lot.”
