Students wishing to enter the accounting profession can take most of the courses required by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario, the Society of Management Accountants of Ontario, and the Certified General Accountants Association of Ontario as credits towards the BBA degree. Specific course requirements can be obtained from the Undergraduate Programs Office in the Department of Business.
The School of Business & Economics of Wilfrid Laurier University, in co-operation with various professional institutes, associations and societies, offers courses for candidates seeking to qualify for professional designations.
Students may complete required courses for professional accounting designations on a full- or part-time basis. All academic rules regarding failures and prerequisites apply. (The Diploma in Accounting is not a requirement of the professional accounting organizations.)
