    Why do Accounting?

    A school background in Accounting is useful for any person wishing to enter the world of commerce in such areas as business management, risk management, venture capitalists, banking, tourism, marketing, insurance, information technology, resource management, finance, consultancy, advisory and self-employment.

    So where does Accounting lead?

    Accounting is a core subject for almost every commerce degree in Australasia and is seen as advantageous for all university graduates- despite specialisation. If you wish to be successful - be it in science, medicine, law or commerce, eventually you will be responsible for the management of money by way of budgets and strategic decision-making. Accounting prepares you to handle these funds in a responsible and accurate manner.

    He rei ngā niho, he parāoa ngā kauae.

    One must have the right qualifications for great enterprises.

Recently Craigs Investment Partners offered our Accounting students a unique opportunity by Ewan Westergaard who has been working with our Commerce Department to better students financial awareness.

Ts opportunity will allow Accounting students to set up their own mySTART account through Craigs Investment Partners. Ts is an easy method of buying and selling shares on the NZX using real money.

The school sees ts as a unique opportunity for our young men in terms of providing a real life financial experience.

Our thanks are extended to Ewan for s interest in challenging our young men and best wishes to those who choose to accept ts opportunity.
