Accountants are organizational leaders who provide key counsel, in addition to ensuring financial information accurately reflects an organization’s financial position.

bachelor of commerce and the master of accounting prepare you for the CPA Common Final Exam

Within Sprott’s BCom program, you can complete all of the required academic courses for entry into the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP). Co-op hours in approved placements can be counted toward the practical experience requirements to become a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA).

Sprott BCom Accounting grads are eligible to apply to our CPA-Accredited Master of Accounting (MAcc) program. MAcc graduates are exempt from the CPA PEP and can proceed directly to the CPA Common Final Exam, one of the last steps toward achieving the CPA designation.
