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 a reputation 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:
Complex problem solving
Strategic and critical thinking
Accounting and budgeting skills
How to prepare, read and analyze financial statements
Understanding the tax system and tax planning
Auditing theory and practice
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.
A Bachelor of Commerce degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background. All JMSB students follow a core business curriculum coupled with a JMSB major, which may be combined with a minor in another discipline or any combination of elective courses that interest them.
If you already have an undergraduate degree in any field other than accounting and want to prepare for the CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) designation, our certificate program is for you. The Certificate in Accountancy is only open to Canadian citizens, landed immigrants and permanent residents of Canada who hold a Bachelor’s degree, in any subject other than Accountancy, and can only be completed on a part-time basis.
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
