As one of the three accounting membership bodies in Australia alongside the CPA and ICAA, The Institute of Public Accountants is a professional organisation for accountants recognised for their practical, hands-on skills and a broad understanding of the total business environment.

The IPA Program offers graduates all the essentials to become a successful, internationally recognised qualified accountant in today’s volatile and competitive market.

A wide selection of electives allows members to select subjects of most relevance or interest to them.
