What's so unique about ONU's MSc in Accounting?

The MSc in Accounting program offers a Forensic Accounting and Audit Services Track to develop your skills in forensic accounting, auditing, and business valuation — helping you stand out in the job market. It offers a blended format, meaning you'll spend some time on campus, but still have the flexibility to complete your studies online from anywhere. Choose either the 12 month track or the 24 month track depending on what works best with your schedule.

In this program, you'll have the opportunity to earn the additional credit hours required to sit for the CPA exam. You'll also be prepared to sit for other professional certification exams that are associated with high salary potential and high demand in the marketplace.

Here's a quick look at just a few of the courses you'll take as part of your MSc in Accounting:

  • Fraud examination
  • Corporate governance and risk management
  • Ethics and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance
  • Accounting information systems
  • Advanced topics in auditing
  • Data analytics

Getting certified as an accountant in the United States — and Canada

You'll have free access to all the materials needed to prepare you for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. In addition to the CPA exam, the program will help you prepare for the following:

  • Certified Fraud Examiner
  • Certified Internal Auditor
  • NACVA's Accredited Valuation Analys

You can receive a reimbursement up to $175 USD upon successful completion of these three exams.

If you have accreditation in the United States, you can get licenced in Canada, too — but there's a catch. You'll need at least a year of full-time experience working as an accountant in the USA before you can seek a CPA designation in Canada. Find out more about bringing your CPA licence from the USA to Canada. Concerned about getting a year of experience? Touch base with ONU's career advisory services for help.
