Outstanding accountants keep businesses ahead of the curve: solving problems, building sound financial strategies and ensuring good fiscal health. If you’re a high achiever with an appetite for continuous learning, consider us. You’ll join a program with areputation for graduates who achieve excellent results at national professional accounting examinations.
By entering into a BComm with a Major in Accountancy, you build skills for good business practice, like:

Combine that with our hands-on Co-op program, AACSB accreditation and courses that meet the standards of Quebec’s new accountancy designation, the CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant), and there’s no question you’ll leave us with excellent career prospects.
