Free advice and selfie sticks for CQUni Bundy students
CPA Australia representatives met with over 20 students at CQUniversity Bundaberg last Friday to discuss the benefits of CPA student membership and how the peak body can help students grow their careers in regional areas.
The CPA visitors also provided School of Business and Law students with free selfie sticks to enhance their understanding of the importance of marketing.
Students got right to the business and started using their selfie sticks right away.
CPA Australia general manager Queensland Richard Chapman and Queensland president Stephen Maitland met with the students.
"We are focused on developing tomorrow's strategic business leaders and it's been wonderful networking with you this morning and hearing about your personal career aspirations. We would be delighted if you choose to become CPAs in the future," Mr Chapman said.
Mr Whan said it was wonderful to have senior executives from Brisbane travel to Bundaberg to address students and let them know about the Accounting profession.
"Particularly of interest was the focus on continuing education and the role that the CPA can play in this area for accounting professionals," he said.
Auswide Bank and CQUni recently signed an agreement to offer $50,000 worth of fresh scholarships for CQUniversity students over the next three years.
Students who intend to enrol at the CQUniversity Bundaberg campus in 2016 in the first year of an undergraduate Business or Finance/Accounting program are encouraged to apply by November 30 this year to benefit from one of the four Auswide Bank Scholarships, each valued at $5000.
