Accounting Futures Fund

‌The Fourth Industrial Revolution is knocking on our doors, guaranteeing to change the way everyone does business, but are our accountants ready and prepared?

In this changing environment, a new generation of agile and inquisitive leaders is needed. They must be curious, and able to harness emerging technologies and illuminate big data with human insight and intelligence.

As part of our commitment to creating future-ready graduates Swinburne is, with great passion and purpose, re-imagining accounting education to ensure we can deliver the next generations of trusted, ethical accountants who can lead through an age of disruption.

“Swinburne gave me a wonderful education in accounting and business and I know so many people in the accounting profession and business world who likewise owe their success to the outstanding accounting education they received at Swinburne.

I have made a significant contribution to the Accounting Futures Fund and I call upon you to also give back to Swinburne in the same way. I believe that you will always find that the more you give back, the more rewarding life will be for you.”
