CPA & MPAcc
This page provides information on the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation and how it affects the MPAcc program. Updates are posted when information is available.
1. MPAcc as a Training Program for CPA
In addition to being a Master's level degree program, MPAcc will transition from being a training program for CA to one for CPA. While no major changes to the MPAcc curriculum are expected because the current curriculum covers all skill areas as outlined in the CPA competency map, minor adjustments to breadth and depth of the coverage of these skill areas are expected.
2. Prerequsite Requirement
MPAcc will adopt the prerequsite requirement as set out by CPA Canada and its provincial organizations. This is currently work-in-progress and updates will be provided when available.
3. UFE and CPA final evaluation
MPAcc students who start their program in 2013 and complete in 2014 will be last cohort to write the UFE. MPAcc students who start in 2014 will be the first cohort to write the first CPA final evaluation.
