This summer program enables you to earn a Graduate Diploma in Accounting and take the fastest route to your CPA designation. The GDA program combined with the prerequisites to admission (normally a Commerce degree of rigour equivalent to Queen’s Commerce with a concentration in accounting) is nationally accredited under CPA National Accreditation Standards. Queen’s Graduate Diploma in Accounting provides an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding and significantly expand your knowledge of accounting, while preparing you for entry into the CPA Capstone Modules 1 and 2. Upon completion of these modules, you will be ready to write the Common Final Evaluation (CFE).
