Earn a Graduate Diploma in Accounting and take the fastest route to your CPA designation with this nationally accredited program.

This 13-week summer program, following a BCom (Accounting), begins in May and includes 5 courses which will qualify you to enter the final stages of CPA certification.

Expand your knowledge. Enhance your qualifications.

Queen's Graduate Diploma in Accounting provides an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding and significantly expand your knowledge of accounting, while preparing you for entry into the CPA Capstone Modules 1 and 2. Upon completion of these modules, you will be ready to write the Common Final Evaluation (CFE).

Smith School of Business has a proven track record in preparing recent business undergraduates for their professional designation. Over the last five years, Queen’s graduates have achieved a pass rate unprecedented in Canada for first time writers - a five year average in excess of 90 percent.

Qualify to write the CFE faster

With the Queen's Graduate Diploma in Accounting option, you will qualify to write the CFE in only 15 months, unlike the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP) option, which takes a total of 27 months.

A nationally accredited program

Because Queen's Graduate Diploma in Accounting combined with the prerequisites to admission (normally a Commerce degree of rigour equivalent to Queen’s Commerce with a concentration in accounting) is nationally accredited under CPA National Accreditation Standards, once you have successfully completed the program, you will be qualified to enter the CPA Capstone Modules 1 and 2 anywhere in Canada.

The CPA designation

The Chartered Professional Accountant designation is the most highly-prized and universally-recognized accounting designation. It was introduced in Canada in 2013, following the merger of the three accounting bodies - CA, CMA and CGA.


The program curriculum consists of 5 mandatory courses. These 5 courses represent the post-undergraduate course requirements for entry into the CPA Capstone Modules 1 and 2. These will prepare you for the writing of the Common Final evaluation (CFE). You must successfully complete all 5 courses to receive a Queen's Graduate Diploma in Accounting. Both the Audit & Assurance stream and the Performance Management stream can be completed through this program.
