Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Bridging Certificates

The Dhillon School of Business now offers two post-bachelor certificates with a combined post-bachelor certificate option 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 
  • Combined Post-Bachelor Certificates in Accounting

Both the Post-Bachelor Certificate in Accounting Fundamentals and Post-Bachelor Certificate in Advanced Accounting can be completed in as little as one year on a full-time basis. The Combined Post-Bachelor 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.
