Take your degree to the next level and specialize in the fields of accounting and finance with the Accounting and Finance Post-Baccalaureate Diploma.
Upon graduation, students can secure intermediate-level positions in financial reporting, taxation, management accounting, auditing and finance. Graduates can also pursue a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF).
Students who successfully complete this program will be granted transfer credit towards ACAF entry level and technical courses, as well as one of the applied courses. This diploma also partially satisfies the entrance requirements of the CPA’s Professional Education Program (PEP).
Day and evening courses are offered year-round to both part-time and full-time students, providing the flexibility needed to meet other life commitments while earning your diploma.
This program is intended for students with degrees in areas other than Business.
Applicants must have an undergraduate degree from a recognized post-secondary institution in Canada or an equivalent credential from an approved institution in a different country. Any applicant who earned their credential in a language other than English must meet the Douglas College English language proficiency requirement.
Applicants whose undergraduate degree is in business administration should also look at the Post-Degree Diploma in Accounting program to determine if this is a more suitable program for them.
