To date, 100% of our students have secured internships!
How It Works
- Full-time students enroll in ACCT 5199 during the fall term following their first summer of full-time study
- Part-time students who do not qualify for an exemption from the Internship will be required to complete their internship (one term) before graduating from the MAcc program. The term is subject to full-time tuition fees
- A minimum of 480 hours (equivalent to 14 weeks @ 7 hours per day) is required. Please note that this is the minimum requirement and the majority of students complete 8 month work-terms (September – April).
- Students are expected to meet to discuss resume, cover letter and conduct at least one mock interview
- Positions will be posted to the mySprott portal in early May, following our annual MAcc Wine & Cheese recruiting event.
- While the MAcc office provides many resources for students to be successful, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to secure an Internship position that meets the eligibility requirements
Please note, students may opt to seek a position using their own network/job search. Approval of the position must be obtained from the MAcc Office.
International students must apply for a co-op work permit (no fee) and a Social Insurance Number. A letter from the MAcc Office will be provided in support of this application. Information on the application process can be found through Carleton’s International Student Services Office.
In Ontario, mandatory internships have flexibility with regards to compensation. The majority of our students secure paid positions however some students have benefited from unpaid experiences with non-profit organizations.
