Mark Giglia, Director of AR Advisors
“Solutions don’t come from a spreadsheet. They come from creative thinking and a strong, close working relationship between advisor and client.”
Why today’s accountants need to be more than data entrants

Nicholas Tang, Master of Taxation
I’ve really enjoyed the course, especially the case studies we tackle in class. The multitude of viewpoints has opened my eyes and encouraged me to think outside the box.
Volunteering at the Curtin Tax Clinic has been a huge highlight, offering me the chance to serve the community, learn from industry practitioners and hone my practical skills. The team feels like family, and as an international student, the experience has given me the confidence to jump into an Australian work environment.
