Description:Students from Waterloo's AFM, or Math/CPA, or Biotech/CPA programs can combine their undergraduate degree with the Master of Accounting (MAcc) program to move directly to the CPA Common Final Examination (CFE). AFM or Math/CPA or Biotech/CPA + MAcc is designed to develop the knowledge and skills within the CPA Professional Education Program. The 3 undergraduate programs allow students to explore all 6 CPA technical competency areas - Financial Reporting, Strategy and Governance, Management Accounting, Audit and Assurance, Finance, and Taxation. In MAcc, you'll complete the integration of the CPA core modules, and by selecting 2 CPA electives, add depth in the areas of Assurance, Performance Management, Tax, or Finance. The CPA Capstones will round out your MAcc before you proceed directly to the CFE - all in 8 months.
