    Course Summary

    The University of Saskatchewan’s BCom programs are delivered by the renowned Edwards School of Business. A BCom in Accounting will teach you ‘the language of business’ and prepares you to enter a higher level business degree program such as an MBA. Alternatively, it can also give you all of the skills you’ll need to enter the business world with a significant competitive advantage over other graduates. 

    All BCom students complete a common core curriculum in their first year. That means that regardless of which BCom program you enrol in, you can switch easily between the different degrees at any time before you begin your second year. 

    The specialisations offered include:

    • Accounting
    • Finance
    • Human Resources
    • Management
    • Marketing
    • Operations Management

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.

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Saskatchewan strives to use both traditional and innovative techniques appropriate to each degree they offer. For example, you’ll attend large lecture classes but also smaller and more interactive seminars and tutorial sessions. Many subjects have experiential or co-operative learning content, and you’ll learn a great many practical skills of all kinds. 

    Note that after you apply to a specialised program in January of your second year, the teaching methods will become much less generic.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree will prepare you well for several different graduate degree programs, or for a wide range of different careers. Many Accounting students pursue the MPAcc program at the Edwards School of Business or study for professional certification with a program like the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP). Recent graduates of USask’s Accounting BCom have become Taxation Specialists, investment Analysts, Budget Analysts, Auditors and of course Accountants.
