OP700109 Bachelor of Business (Accounting) is closed to new learners for enrolment in 2023.
Over the last eighteen months our staff have been working collaboratively with Te Pūkenga and staff from the other polytechnics who offer accounting courses, to prepare to move to a unified Bachelor of Accounting programme.
As a result of this work, all institutions in the network of Te Pūkenga subsidiaries, will be progressively closing current accounting courses as we prepare to offer new courses being developed for the unified programme.
The new Bachelor of Accounting is now available, visit this webpage to find out more: Bachelor of Accounting [Te Pūkenga]
