Diploma programs are open to students in any relevant graduate program or to those who have a general interest in graduate-level work. For diplomas that are part of a graduate degree (concurrent), please contact the relevant graduate program office. For graduate diplomas that can be pursued on their own (stand-alone, direct entry), applications are submitted online.
The Diploma in Advanced Accounting (DAAc) is a concurrent program for Master of Accounting (MAcc) students who elect to graduate after completion of Term 2 of the MAcc program.
The DAAc is designed to further students’ academic and intellectual abilities in all fields of professional accountancy. The program places an emphasis on developing students’ critical thinking abilities and their capacity to operate in decision-based environments characterized by high degrees of ambiguity through applied case analysis. Cases also help to develop students’ appreciation of multiple viewpoints and perspectives.
Schulich’s Diploma in Advanced Accounting is accredited by CPA Ontario. Successful graduates of the program will have completed the CPA Electives and be eligible for entering the capstone phase of CPA’s accreditation program.
