Accounting

Overview


Starting in your third year, you’ll have the opportunity to take a series of electives in financial reporting, managerial and cost accounting, tax, audit and related areas. Then, in your fourth year, you’ll complete a capstone case class.

Our accounting major program is designed to prepare you for a professional accounting program after graduation.

Our courses provide the prerequisites and pervasive competencies needed to begin the CPA Canada program. We have a strong tradition of excellence in this area and our instructors are well qualified and dedicated to student success.

Majors


Our Bachelor of Commerce Co-op program offers a major in accounting. By contrast, other programs offer multiple accounting classes by arrangement.

Career prospects

Our accounting majors usually go on to complete a professional accounting designation (CPA) and have careers that begin in public practice before moving to industry jobs.
