    Course Summary

    Ryerson University’s BComm in Accounting and Finance is a great way to learn what you will need to qualify as a CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) or CFA (Chartered Financial Accountant). The program is delivered by Ryerson’s famed School of Accounting and Finance and the Ted Rogers School of Management, right in the heart of Toronto, the capital of Canada’s Financial Sector. 

    This program is available as either a standard 4 year degree or as a 5 year degree with an integrated year in co-operative education. In that time you’ll study performance measurement, taxation, auditing, financial reporting, financial planning and financial analysis. 

    Note that students admitted to the BComm program will not officially choose their major until year 3 of the program, so the first 2 years are a common core curriculum dealing with general business skills, leadership issues and the general background of information you’ll need to thrive once you choose an area in which to specialise. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
