Welcome to the School of Accounting and Corporate Governance and thanks for visiting our web site. Accounting and Corporate Governance education is one of the long serving areas at the University of Tasmania and has been taught since 1919. Throughout the School's development, and in particular during the last decade, the importance of both teaching and research continues to be emphasised. In today's business environment, more than ever, the School is committed to ensuring that a University education should produce professional competence, a portfolio of intellectual skills and ethical attitudes, the value of which will endure during graduates' working lives. The School is proud that its courses incorporate the important issues that reflect accounting principles and governance issues so commonly discussed across society today.
The School is a leader in providing flexible teaching and learning and has received the Vice Chancellor's award for teaching excellence. The award of such an honour to a School rather than to an individual at the University is a rarity. As a School, we have strong links with professional accounting and corporate governance bodies including CPA Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and the National Institute of Accountants. The School also maintains relationships with industry and government and these links are important to ensure that teaching and research continue to be at the cutting edge.
