The diploma program can be completed in 14 weeks. It gives candidates from McMaster University the opportunity to start Capstone 1 (Integrative Module) of the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP) directly after graduation. The technical competencies of all four elective areas of the PEP are covered in the curriculum:



Performance Management


This gives candidates more flexibility when pursuing career opportunities.

The program’s orientation workshops (DPA 600: Professional Workshops (non-credit)) and integrative curriculum also give candidates opportunities to develop enabling competencies which will be important during their careers.

Candidates from McMaster University who complete the diploma and the required commerce / MBA courses of the CPA-Accredited program with a 70% average (and at least 60% in each course) will gain entry into CPA PEP at the Capstone 1 (Integrative) Module. They are then eligible to write the Common Final Examination (CFE) after completing Capstone 1 and 2 (Preparatory) Module. The two capstone modules and the Common Final Examination can be completed in five months.
