Accounting

The accounting stream prepares students to wield numbers and financial management to succeed in the world of business. This program is fully accredited by CPA Alberta meaning graduates can pursue their professional accounting designation upon graduation. The accounting stream is also perfect for students looking to pursue careers related to finances and money management outside of the accounting profession.

Course selection

In addition to the required general courses for a BCom, students specializing in Accounting should take the following:

The timing of the program is very flexible, so you can plan out your schedule to fit your own needs. Most students choose to take several business courses and then complete many foundation and breadth courses in the first year. This gives greater flexibility in their second or third year to participate in an exchange at one of our partner institutions around the globe. If you are pursuing an accounting designation, you need to ensure you complete the required courses when they are offered (some courses are offered once every two years). Every student is assigned a faculty advisor to help with course selection throughout their program.
