      Master of Professional Accounting
MPAcc is a graduate degree program that attracts students from across Canada as well as internationally. It provides an alternative
route for students seeking the CA designation in Western Canada.

      1. MPAcc runs for two 4-month terms over consecutive summers from May to August.

      2. Between terms, students pursuing the CA designation may article at a professional firm approved for training.
         (This is not a requirement of the program, and students are responsible for securing their own employment).

      3. MPAcc students register with CASB but are exempt from Modules 1-5.

      4. Students participate in Module 6, CASB’s Uniform Evaluation Preparation program.

      5. Students who are successful in the MPAcc program and Module 6 are eligible to write the Uniform Evaluation (UFE).

      Benefits of the Program

and the challenges of a CA career.
