The Dean's Welcome Message
The Sydney City School of Business at Top Education Institute looks forward to 2017 with great plans after a successful 2016. The Business School is definitely the place to study in 2017 for your undergraduate or postgraduate business or accounting degree. To our established courses in international business, professional accounting and marketing, we have recently added a Bachelor in Applied Finance and Accounting, and a Master of Accounting Practice. This, and more, is explained in the pages that follow.
A particularly exciting development for the Sydney City Business School is the recently signed commercial alliance between Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Top Education. For students this will create opportunities for career development programs with PwC, exposure to PwC guest lecturers and learning with course content that has been benchmarked against real world activities of a global financial services firm.
Another recent development is the recognition by CPA Australia of Top Education as a Tuition Provider for the CPA Program. Many students aspire to achieve CPA status and now all relevant studies toward that goal, from start to finish, are supported through approved tuition provided by Top Education lecturers. In particular, the new Master of Accounting Practice includes tuition for the CPA Program of CPA Australia to ensure students have the best possible preparation for the challenging CPA program exams.
In 2017, we welcome new staff, new programs and, most importantly, we welcome all new students and offer our best wishes and our full support for a successful and productive time at Top Education.
