Overview

Take our general accounting stream to gain the skills and hands-on experience to land entry-level accounting positions within non-profits, corporations, and other for-profit organizations.

Following the first year of common curriculum shared by all accounting and business students, you will be immersed in accounting principles and practices and have the opportunity to gain real-world experience through a work placement.

This program will be delivered through both traditional classroom and online learning.

This program has been designed to accommodate students who want to continue their studies towards a degree or get entry into professional accounting programs such as the Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF) or the Certified Aboriginal Financial Manager (CAFM) designation. As a graduate, you may opt to take one additional year in Cambrian's Business Administration - Accounting program to enhance your skills and obtain advanced standings into the ACAF and/or degree programs. In order to enter into the ACAF certificate or the CAFM designation programs, you must achieve a 60% average or more in certain courses and an overall average of 65% in Cambrian's Business – Accounting program.
