Master of Professional Accounting
A Comprehensive Education for your Diverse Future
The Master of Professional Accounting Program (MPAcc) is an innovative graduate degree program that attracts top-notch accounting students from across Canada and internationally. Created by visionary academics in response to the demand for applied, competency-based training, the program actively involves students through the use of business cases, skills workshops, and other contemporary educational techniques. MPAcc provides a proven alternative route for students who are seeking the CPA designation in Canada with a first time pass rate of the UFE exceeding 90%. The program also gives students an opportunity to develop an appreciation for the academic research process and academe as a career choice.
With the unification of the accounting bodies across Canada, the faculty and staff at Edwards decided to proactively adjust the MPAcc curriculum to match the needs of the new CPA Competency Map, and as a result became the only CPA Accredited post-secondary institution in western Canada. Students enrolled in the MPAcc program will undertake an alternative route that covers the first five modules of the CPA PEP program. Upon completion, students will be able to enroll in Capstone Module 2, then take the Common Final Evaluation.
