As a transitional measure for students admitted to the full-time CPA Program at the Desautels Faculty of Management in May 2014 the only complementary courses that will be offered during the program will be those that allow CPA’s to practice Public Accounting (Practice of Taxation and Assurance Services). Students wishing to pursue other CPA paths such as Financial Analysis or Performance Measurement (management accounting) should apply to the part-time program offered through Continuing Studies which starts in September 2014 or wait for the 2015 cycle of the program at Desautels.
