MAccFin Program Structure

Master of Accounting and Finance (MAccFin)

Program Requirements and Structure

The MAccFin is a professional graduate degree that is offered exclusively on a full-time basis designed to develop expertise in both the accounting and finance disciplines and their intersections. Students must complete 17 courses totaling 8.5 Full Course Equivalents (FCEs). Of the FCEs, 0.5 is dedicated to a co-op internship.

The program has been designed to be completed over 16 consecutive months (four academic terms), starting annually every May. The program follows a lock-step or cohort model, which helps build a collaborative environment ripe for galvanizing a life-long network of colleagues.

Terms 1 and 2 will be spent completing course work (eight months) followed by a co-op internship term (four months). Students will return to course work for their fourth and final term in order to complete their degree requirements:
