Why study Accountancy?

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
  • Quantitative 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.

Program highlights

  • Accountancy Co-op students have interned for companies including Bombardier Aerospace, Canada Revenue Agency, KPMG, Le Chateau, Pfizer and PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Get involved in the highly engaged Accounting Students Society or participate in an Accounting Case Competition
