Develop fundamental skills that are assets to any accounting career.

Program Overview

Master fundamental accounting skills

Learn the general principles and applications that modern accountants rely on. Expert professors will guide you through foundational concepts in a small classroom environment, supporting their lectures with hands-on learning opportunities. You’ll gain experience using spreadsheets and databases. You’ll also learn to use accounting and tax software programs such as Sage 50, MS Access and Profile.

Learn how accounting supports business

Businesses rely on accountants to monitor their performance, compliance and financial health. Your first year will involve common curriculum shared by all business students, providing you with an understanding of how companies work. Topics of study include communications, finance, human resources and marketing — all areas of business you’ll impact as an accountant.

Earn credits towards your degree or other credentials

Many students use our Business Accounting diploma program as a springboard towards their degree. Your diploma credits can be applied towards our Honours Bachelor of Business Administration – Accounting degree program, which even features some of the same professors! Credits in the diploma program can also be applied towards your Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification.
