An online Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting is a 1-year course that develops all-round accounting skills.
- A Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting builds on the 1-semester certificate course and is a pathway to an MPA degree.
- Students learn how to do accounting in a technical sense and use financial concepts in a business environment.
