The university can be seen as the foundation of our society, and so we have developed initiatives to promote the profession, to challenge students’ thinking and to provide opportunities for engaging academia and practice.

Catalyst sessions

These one-off sessions that take place once a year as part of the regular class time of university modules. Run as interactive workshops and featuring guest talks and multimedia presentations, the sessions inspire students and challenge their thinking. Building on the course content, the sessions are structured in three levels: inquiry and social context; complexity and systems thinking; design thinking and innovation.

University assemblies

These half-day events bring together students and academics from accounting and other disciplines, as well as practitioners, businesses and civil society leaders from local communities to galvanise interest in the greater purpose of the accountancy profession. Sessions explore multidisciplinary issues and ideas within accounting, auditing and finance and connect them with wider social challenges.
