Overview

Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Accounting

The Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Accounting is designed for a student that has completed a bachelor's degree and has decided to further their education by pursuing the CPA accounting designation. 

The program will allow students to obtain the required accounting courses to then be accepted into the accounting professional program. 

The program aims to provide the skill sets identified by CPA Canada as critical to achieve competency as a CPA. 

The program consists of fifteen courses (51 credits) that will allow students to develop strong technical skills in financial reporting, management accounting, strategy and governance, audit and assurance, finance and taxation. 

It will also ensure the development of the required enabling competencies of the profession: professionalism, ethical behaviour, written and oral communication, leadership, and problem solving. 

Note: This is a two-year program, though students can choose to complete the program in an accelerated form.
