CPA Australia

CPA Australia is one of the world's largest accounting bodies with a global membership of more than 164,000 members working in 150 countries and regions around the world. Members work in diverse roles across public practice, commerce and industry, not-for-profit, government and academia, throughout Australia and internationally.

CPA Australia’s members are distinguished by their degree qualifications and the additional education they undertake post-graduation. The skills and qualifications acquired through higher education are integral for a successful career grounded in accounting. We share a passion with academia for building a solid foundation of professional accounting skills for the leaders of today and tomorrow. This is a key reason why CPA Australia values and works in close partnership with The University of Melbourne.

CPA Australia advocates for the profession on campuses, and supports accounting academics in their teaching and research, by facilitating their connections with their colleagues, education and business stakeholders, and advocating for appropriate policy for members, the profession and the broader public. CPA Australia activities and events engage accounting academics, working with them to support students’ studies and careers, and enabling their peer networks and connections to future employers.
