Earn Your Master’s While Working Towards Your CPA

Sprott’s Master of Accounting (MAcc) is a program that provides a gateway to a career as a professional accountant. Students graduating from the MAcc will be exempt from the CPA Canada Professional Education Program (PEP) and will proceed directly to the CPA Canada Common Final Examination, which is one of the final steps in becoming a Chartered Professional Accountant.

The accounting faculty within the Sprott School of Business are experts on the competencies required by the accounting profession. In addition, MAcc candidates will have several of their cases marked, with extensive feedback provided, by professional case markers.
