Accountancy and Finance at Otago is so much more than learning from textbooks
Our Community Accounting Initiative, staff and student research projects for business clients, visitor programme and regular guest lecturers are other ways we stay connected with the community.
Please get in touch with the Department if you are interested in collaborating with us.
