    I gained real-world connections and deep financial knowledge in this course, which provided the right formula for success in my job search. The small classes provide an excellent opportunity for stimulating discussions on global economic trends but also for pioneering research in the Honours component.

    I chose a regional university rather than a major city because the help you receive is personal and tailor-made for you. The lecturers know you by name and introduce you to their professional networks. For me, the biggest strength of the course is the Work Integrated Learning modules paired with the internships.

    Thanks to JCU’s work-integrated learning program, we appreciate that students are work-ready by the time they graduate. And, being a local firm with offices in Cairns and Townsville, it makes perfect sense for us to source our audit graduates from JCU’s North Queensland campuses.
