Thrive in the World of High-Tech Global Business

NAPS business degrees will equip our students to not just survive, but thrive in today’s high-tech, fast-paced, global economy.

Uniform accounting standards are now being adopted globally, making accounting education and practice virtually borderless. CPA Australia now has 10 offices across Asia and more than a quarter of its 155,000 members are from the Asian region.

Technological and industrial transformations in the workplace continue to both generate greater demand and call for evolving skills sets.

Experiential Learning

NAPS academics focus on including experiential learning where relevant and practical in the classroom. This means that they will explore case studies, give you ‘learning by doing’ activities and take the class on excursions to different employment and other relevant settings and events. NAPS will organise speakers from professions of interest to make presentations and interact with students.

NAPS approach to Experiential Learning does not currently include external placements.

Participate in Fast Growing Islamic and Emerging Economies

Business in emerging economies struggle to find professional workers while those in developed economies continually strive for greater skills to retain their edge. Students are increasingly travelling the world to source professional business degrees such as those offered at NAPS in our Accounting and Islamic Business degrees.

Accountancy Expertise in High Demand

The Bachelor of Business (Accounting) has consistently ranked as one of the six most studied degrees in Australia as workforce demand remains strong. Business and industry particularly need the higher-level skill sets of management accountants, taxation accountants and accountancy expertise for leadership.

A recent (2018) SBS report on the jobs outlook for Australia from 2017 to 2014 stated:

“The total number of job openings from 2017 to 2024 will be about 516,600 per year (4.1 million in total) … The highest number of job openings, 121,700 per year (973,600 in total), will be in professional occupations…the second highest, 71,300 per year (570,600 in total), will be for managers…

Among professionals, the highest rate of increase in employment will be for accountants, auditors and company secretaries (2.9% per year), likely due to growth in industries that demand these occupations.

The Department of Jobs and Small Business reports also notes that:

“Graduate outcomes data show that full-time employment outcomes for new accounting graduates continued to improve with 78 percent of accounting graduates finding work four months after graduation…” It also found that employers in Victoria, South Australia and the Northern Territory experienced some difficulties filling their vacancies for accountants.

The Deloitte Access Economics research found that research by McKinsey:

“suggests there could be a global shortage of 85 million medium-skill and high-skill workers by 2020.”

Recruiters are battling it out to find good accounting talent in the Asia-Pacific region.

Innovative Learning for Maximum Results

The NAPS Bachelor of Business and Islamic Business courses use ‘inquiry-based’ learning strategies that enable students to develop problem-solving and decision-making skills relevant and indeed vital in the business environment as accounting specialists.

The course is AQF Level 7. Upon completion, students will:

  • have developed a broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge with the depth required for practice in business generally and in accounting in particular;
  • have well-developed cognitive, technical and communication skills that will enable them to select appropriate methods and technologies in dealing with complex and sometimes unpredictable challenges in the business and accounting environment and be able to design innovative solutions in response;
  • be able to use their cognitive and technical skills to analyse and evaluate information to complete a range of activities in business and accounting, and be able to transmit knowledge, skills and ideas to others in the discipline;
  • will have the knowledge and skills to demonstrate autonomy and ability to engage in self-directed learning;
  • have well-developed judgement and responsibility that enable them to offer specialist advice in their field and to apply the principles of corporate social responsibility and business ethics; and
  • be able to engage professionally, and to communicate both orally and in writing effectively with individuals and organisations, in a manner which is respectful of the needs, values, personalities and capabilities of others.

Quality business degrees are also attracting students from around the globe, because they open the door to professional positions and further study through Master of Business degrees.
