Fast-track it or take it slow. No matter where you are, we ensure you get all the support you’ll need to achieve in your studies, from academic assistance to financial support through scholarships. You can start your degree in February, July or October.
Graduate job-ready. Gain experience and build on your classroom knowledge through an accounting internship, community internship or global mobility internship.

Griffith Business School is an accredited member of AACSB International which means our business degrees are internationally recognised for excellence and outstanding business education. It’s the most prestigious accreditation a business school can earn.
Recognised by industry

Depending on the courses you complete you can graduate with a degree accredited by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and CPA Australia.

Commerce graduate Alex Noon considered a wide range of possible careers before he realised that the world of accountancy was for him. He enrolled to study accounting and finance at Griffith Business School and has not looked back.
At university he seized the opportunities brought by membership of the Griffith Honours College and when Griffith's work-integrated-learning program led him to city firm McGrathNicol's summer vacation program he got the chance for some hands-on industry experience. This led to a part-time job while he completed his degree, followed by a full-time position on graduation.
'My studies gave me that base understanding of the industry and what was going to be required of me,' Alex says.
