The IPA Program is undergoing exciting changes for 2021!

We have heard your feedback and have now refocused the IPA Program.

The IPA Program now consists of two awards: a Graduate Certificate of Public Accounting (GCPA) “The Professional Sequence” and the Deakin University Master of Business Administration (MBA).

The GCPA comprises of 4 units: a core and compulsory ethics unit and 3 electives. The 3 electives will partially or fully meet the educational requirements for your statutory registration (e.g., tax practitioner or financial planner, with plans to move to RCA compliance offering). There is also a general electives stream.

The MBA is of six units (subject to recognition of prior learning), and is largely unchanged with its focus on personal, practice and professional development which will expose all members to techniques which promote smarter working, business growth and techniques for change management.

Current students undertaking the IPA Program Pathways Program have been notified regarding transitional arrangements. If you have any questions, please contact 1800 625 625 or email us at pathways@publicaccountants.org.au.
