CPA Bridging


CPA Bridging certificates

Accounting and finance professionals are recognized worldwide for their strategic thinking, financial expertise, business insights, and leadership. 

The Dhillon School of Business at the Calgary Campus now offers three post-bachelor certificate options under CPA Bridging. Adding one or both of our certificates to your existing undergraduate education allows you to stand out in a career market where employers are searching for diversity and breadth, and also prepares you for entry into the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Professional Education Program (PEP). 

Students can choose from three post-bachelor certificate options:

Post-Bachelor Certificate in Accounting Fundamentals

Post-Bachelor Certificate in Advanced Accounting

Post-Bachelor Combined Certificates in Accounting

Both the Accounting Fundamentals and Advanced Accounting post-bachelor certificates can be completed on a full-time basis in as little as one year, or on a part-time basis while you work. The Post-Bachelor Combined Certificates in Accounting lets you take both the Accounting Fundamentals and Advanced Accounting certificates and can be completed in as little as two years on a full-time basis. All three certificate options are available on a part-time basis so you can study while you continue to work. With evening and weekend classes in Calgary and daytime classes in Lethbridge, you can choose to study the courses you need at a pace that works for you.
