Bachelor of Business (Accounting)

OP700109

Closed to new enrolments

Qualification Update

 New learners

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 will be offered in Trimester 1 2023, subject to approval from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). This new degree developed by Te Pūkenga will meet the new competencies introduced by the accounting professional bodies, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) and CPA Australia. The same degree will be offered online and in person at Te Pūkenga campuses.

 If you would like to be notified when this degree is available, please provide your details here.

 Re-enrolling learners

If you are a current learner in OP700109 Bachelor of Business (Accounting) up to, and including, Trimester 3 2022, and depending on how many courses you have completed you will either complete the OP700109 Bachelor of Business (Accounting) or transition to the new Te Pūkenga Bachelor of Accounting.

If you are completing OP700109 Bachelor of Business (Accounting) click this link to see the last time each of the accounting courses will be offered. Please be assured that if you transition to Te Pūkenga Bachelor of Accounting you will receive full credit for the courses you have completed.

Check the Study plan PDF to see the suggested order to study your courses. How long it will take you to complete the qualification will depend on whether you study one, two or three courses each trimester.


Qualification Structure

  • The 13 compulsory courses
  • All three courses in the Elective section
  • Both courses in the Chartered Accountant section.

If you are not studying the CAANZ, path you need to complete:

  • The 13 compulsory course
  • Two courses from the Electives section
  • Three electives from any Open Polytechnic degree course. One of these must be a Level 5 course and one must be a Level 7 course.

If this is your first enrolment we recommend you enrol in one course per trimester to start with. Select a course, then go to the bottom of the table to add it to your enrolment plan.
