The accounting profession today enjoys a diverse and integral role within organisations – with financial professionals providing business management information rather than purely financial information.
Accountants are found in every aspect of the financial sector. They dominate professional roles such as CEOs and major business directors; the top management teams in modern commercial organisations typically include accountants. Accountants often play a key role in the development of strategic business plans, facilitating major change within an organisation. Accounting qualifications provides the base from which to choose from a multitude of career paths and opportunities.

What About University?
After completing grade 12 many students are faced with deciding whether to go to university or find employment in the workforce. This decision can be more complex when you are not sure which career is for you. Camerons offers attractive options that regularly become available to students – these options may assist in deciding if accounting is for you.
What can I do after university?
If you would like a professional qualification following completion of your tertiary course, you will be required to undertake further accreditation through either the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA) or CPA Australia. Members of both organisations are found across the breadth of the business world, from industry and commerce, public practice and the public sector to government organisations.
You can travel the world with a professional qualification and be recognised for the skills you have learnt in Australia. Currently there are thousands of Australian CA and CPA professionals working in every major city around the world.
