Description:This accelerated program is offered over two calendar years and provides the same learning outcomes as the three-year advanced diploma program.

The program provides the knowledge and skills necessary for a career in an intermediate-level accounting position, along with the fundamentals necessary for advancement to managerial positions. Graduates of this program are able to apply computer, communication, and mathematical skills and employ management accounting techniques to support accounting activities, including the maintenance of accounting records and the preparation of financial statements and individual and corporate tax returns. In addition, graduates are able to perform a variety of more complex functions, including applying principles of financial analysis and planning and control; using analytical and evaluation skills to support a variety of management functions; and collaborating in the design of an organization's system of internal control. The Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA) recognizes many courses in this program for credit towards their Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF) designation.
