Accounting is the systematic recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions. It can be done on a large scale - for international corporations - or for individuals or for any sized business in-between.

There are agreed national and international rules and regulations that govern the work of accountants. Accounting allows a company to analyse its financial performance, and report important statistics such as profit and loss to managers and shareholders.

Accountants are also analytical thinkers and problem-solvers. Does that sound like you? Then read on.

Melissa Fung
Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Economics

At high school I studied VCE accounting, which sparked my interest in the subject. I've always enjoyed working with numbers so it was a natural fit to study accounting at uni as well. I'm studying a double degree, which gives me the opportunity to study three majors, so I'm combining my accounting studies with majors in economics and finance. I know I want to work as an accountant when I graduate so I chose to do an internship elective, and have worked as a summer intern in an accounting firm. I also joined Monashs Accounting and Finance Leaders Program. This program is tailored towards self-development and networking which really helped me with interviews and talking to recruiters and professionals in my field. The program has enriched my university experience as I was able to get further insight into the accounting industry and boost my career opportunities.
