Advanced preparation for your career in accounting.

Program Overview

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 administration 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.

Specialize your skills through electives

Study advanced accounting principles that aren’t covered in our two-year Business Accounting program! In your final year, you can master skills essential for employment in the field’s more demanding positions. Choose from a broad selection of electives, including courses in tax, auditing, budgeting, business analysis and financial statement preparation.

Optional accounting co-op placement

Enjoy the opportunity to earn while you learn! All advanced diploma students have the option of gaining more than 1,000 hours of work experience through a co-op work term. Co-op is a competitive program and you’ll need to meet certain academic requirements to participate. Connections you build during your work term may lead to employment opportunities after you graduate.

Learn from industry experts

Sheridan’s accounting professors are actively involved in the industry, presenting at conferences and contributing to publications of accounting textbooks and articles. Many also hold the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) designation and maintain strong ties with the business community, which may assist you with obtaining a co-op work term.

Graduate halfway towards your degree

Interested in pursuing your Chartered Professional Accountant designation? As a graduate of this program, you could be just two years away from obtaining the degree you’ll need for entry into the CPA’s Professional Education Program (PEP). Our Degree Completion program allows you to apply your diploma credits towards the Honours Bachelor of Business Administration – Accounting degree. You’ll also have earned up to 15 credits towards your Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification.

Study in Brampton or Mississauga for your first two years

All courses in the first and second year of Sheridan’s Business Administration – Accounting advanced diploma program are offered at both our Davis Campus in Brampton and our Hazel McCallion Campus (HMC) in Mississauga. Third-year courses are taught exclusively at HMC.

Program Summary

Co-op

Students enter this program in either the Co-op or non-Co-op program. Continuation in the Co-op program is conditional on maintaining the established minimum required academic standard. The program-specific academic standard required for participation in Co-op can be found here: Academic Standards for Co-op and Internship. If there are seats available, students in the non-Co-op program may have the opportunity to apply to the Co-op program at the end of first year. This would be a competitive process with limited seats available. Students in the Co-op program are eligible to complete three Co-op work terms prior to graduation.

Co-operative Education is a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with paid or unpaid work experience within a professional environment. Co-op work terms are related specifically to the academic studies of each student. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.

Students receive in-class and 1-on-1 career education support to help prepare for the work term. The Co-op component is delivered by Sheridan’s Co-operative Education Office, which facilitates over 1,800 Co-op/Internship work terms per year Sheridan-wide.
