Accounting Major

Mentors: Julia Scott and Larry Goldsman

Accounting is a 30 credit major. 

Students doing an Accounting Major usually pursue a professional accounting designation such as the CA, CGA, or CMA. Information for professional accounting orders is available at:

Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario
Ordre des Compatables agréés du Québec
Ordre des CGA du Québec
Ordres des comptables en management accrédités du Québec (CMA)

Because the CA, CMA and CGA designations have now merged to form the CPA designation, there will be new requirements for those entering the programs as of May 2014. These requirements will be available later this Fall. For details, please click here.

CPA (Graduate level programs) are availble at McGill from the following:
