The Honours Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting allows students to build a solid foundation in financial and managerial accounting, auditing and taxation. Students not only learn how to produce accurate financial statements, but also study more complex topics in accounting.
As part of their program, students are able to specialize and take all the courses required to apply for Ontario's Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, or to be flexible and take a more general accounting stream.
This program is offered in English and in French.
The option in accounting allows undergraduate students to build a solid foundation in the accounting discipline, including financial accounting, management accounting and taxation, without leading to the Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.
Co-operative education is available with this program.
The French immersion stream is available with this program.
Requirements for this program have been modified. Please consult the 2018-2019 calendars for the previous requirements.
