Fast Track to an Accounting Designation

The Professional Diploma in Accounting (formerly Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting) is for those who already have an undergraduate degree, who are interested in pursuing an accounting designation as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA).

This flexible program allows students to choose the accounting courses they need for their designation.

Due to the prerequisite structure of accounting, this certificate cannot be completed full-time. It is ideal to complete it part-time over three or four semesters. Those with no previous accounting background may need to take more than 10 courses to meet the course requirements for their designation.
