I am planning to study masters in accounting from australia. What are the job prospects post completion?

I am planning to study masters in accounting from australia. I do not have any hardcore accounting background however have studied basic accounting in school and college. In addition i have over 5 years of work experience however all of it has been with the customer services industry. I am a bit sceptical about finding a job and what kind of jobs will I be able to get upon completion of this course. As this course is on the shortage occupations list in australia, my goal is to stay back in australia and work in the finance sector. What kind of jobs will I be able to get after this course and after a few years can I move towards investment banking ? Also, what other credits or subjects do I need to study to become a chartered accountant? Thanks ..... I am planning to study masters in accounting from australia.

In the U.S., you need a masters in accounting to sit for the CPA exam (certified public accountant). You need a total of 150 credits. The exam is administered by states, so there isn't one that would allow you to practice anywhere in the U.S., although many states offer reciprocity.
