The Master of Accounting and Finance Program (MAccFin) is North America’s first graduate degree that integrates both accounting and finance business disciplines. Offered at the Scarborough campus (UTSC), MAccFin delivers a world-class, practical educational experience that prepares students for both the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) designations and provides additional real-world co-op experience.
The 16-month, full-time program is accredited by the CPA Ontario and the curriculum is based on the Candidate Body of Knowledge from the Chartered Financial Analyst® Program administered by the CFA® Institute. By completing the MAccFin, students will qualify for advanced standing in the Chartered Professional Accountant Professional Education Program (CPA PEP). Obtaining either of these in-demand, globally recognized and respected designations requires a commitment to higher standards of integrity and credibility, which can be essential to desirable employment.
The co-op component builds on 40 years of experience and leadership in co-operative education at UTSC. During the program, students will have access to UTSC’s diverse portfolio of Canada’s most prestigious employers to complete a four-month co-op internship.
