Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) 2001
Edwin knew that he wanted to be an accountant when he finished high school. UNSW Business School's high global ranking for Accounting and its solid industry connections brought Edwin to the Bachelor of Commerce with an Accounting major.
As a Commerce student, Edwin became immersed in student life. He joined Business School clubs and societies like the Business Society and Chartered Accountants Society. The clubs introduced Edwin to new networks and friends who had similar passions and goals to him.
The biggest surprise for Edwin was how approachable lecturers and tutors were.
"Since the teaching staff were passionate about the topics they were teaching, they encouraged us to stretch our perspectives and challenge our thoughts," he said.
As a UNSW Business School accounting student, Edwin’s degree was specifically tailored to lead into a Chartered Accountant program upon graduation.
This program, paired with UNSW's strong industry links, means Edwin now enjoys a career that has included several multi-national companies including PwC, EY, NAB and Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
