Accounting and Information Systems courses

There is a wealth of learning available through the nearly 50 courses that teachers based in the Department of Accounting and Information Systems stage each year.. The courses cover accountability, tax, audit, knowledge management, commercial law, sustainability, bookkeeping, financial reporting, information systems, strategy implementation, accounting and much more.

Each course has a code (e.g. ACCT 102 or INFO 123 or ACCT 644) and the alpha characters ACCT and INFO unique to courses run by the department.

This link will take you to a list of all ACCT and INFO courses.

The courses are distinguished by their increasing level of difficulty, from undergraduate 100-level, through undergraduate 200 and 300-levels, and then postgraduate, including honours, masterate and doctorate levels. In each course's code (e.g. ACCT 341), the level is signified by the first numeric character (i.e. ACCT 341 is a 300-level paper). By combining courses in a manner that is consistent with the relevant regulations, you can study towards one of the various qualifications in Accounting and Information Systems.
