  • financial and management accounting;
  • financial statement reporting;
  • personal and corporate income taxation; and
  • advanced financial applications.

Applicants must have successfully completed a 4U math (or equivalent) course within the last five years prior to starting the core certificate requirements.

This certificate is open to the following applicants:

  1. current York students, or 
  2. new applicants to York.
