AASB Graduate intern program - Previous interns

Nicholas Courtney (2001)

Nicholas Courtney

Nick completed his Bachelor of Commerce with Honours at The University of Melbourne, specialising in Accounting and Management. His Honours thesis investigated the association of director-auditor links with auditor engagement tenure. In particular, the investigation focused on whether auditor tenure is likely to be longer where an interlocking director engages the same audit firm at the companies on whose boards that director sits.

Prior to taking up the Graduate Intern position, Nick worked as a:

  • Tutor, The University of Melbourne (2000); and
  • Trainee Accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers (1996 to 1999).

Nick worked on a range of projects during the internship, including the derecognition of financial assets and financial liabilities (securitisation), the glossary of definitions and employee benefits.

After completing the internship, Nick joined Korda Mentha and Colleagues, a boutique corporate recovery, real estate services and transaction services firm.
