Odette CPA Pathways

Your Pathway to Becoming a CPA Begins Here!

Odette CPA Pathways provide you with the ability to complete your CPA Educational requirements and an MBA degree at the same time!

Students interested in earning Chartered Professional Accounting (CPA) designation can choose one of the following paths available through the Odette School of Business.

 

PATH 1: BComm + MBA-PAS

(MBA – Professional Accounting Specialization)

Students with a Bachelor of Commerce degree who have completed the 19 prerequisite courses recognized by CPA Ontario (listed below) at the Odette School of Business can apply for admission into the MBA-PAS.

MBA-PAS can be completed within 12 months. Graduates of the MBA-PAS who have also successfully completed the 19 pre-requisite courses in the undergraduate degree program receive advance standing in the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP), and enter directly to the Common Final Examination (CFE).

This pathway enables students to progress towards a CPA designation and at the same time to complete an MBA degree.

MBA-PAS will be offered starting September 2017 preparing students for the CFE in September 2018.

Bachelor of Commerce students who have completed the Odette CPA Entry to PEP pre-requisite courses but have not enrolled into the MBA-PAS Program are still able to pursue their CPA designation by enrolling into the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP).

Please see the link below for the requirements for admission to CPA PEP (http://www.cpaontario.ca/Students/PreReqEdu/1014page17948.aspx).
