Welcome to the School of Accounting and Commercial Law (SACL). Our mission is to pursue and share knowledge of accounting, taxation, and commercial law within a dynamic and inclusive learning environment.

On this SACL website, you will find details of our degrees and course offerings, the academic requirements for accounting professional bodies, news and research activities, and staff & student profiles.

If you are thinking of studying accounting, commercial law or taxation there is a description of what this entails, but don't hesitate to contact us with any enquiries you may have.

The School is part of the Victoria Business School at Victoria University of Wellington, and we are one of the foremost centres in Australasia for research in Accounting and Commercial Law.

Our staff are predominantly accountants and lawyers and as such it is a "professional" school, a primary function of which is teaching the subjects prescribed by CA ANZ, CPA Australia, CIMA and ACCA to students seeking the academic qualifications to become accountants.

However, we also teach accounting, commercial law and taxation to students from other subjects and at all levels, as well as actively engaging with our stakeholders and the wider community.

I invite you to take the opportunity to explore what our school has to offer and discover how it can create value to your career pathway.
