The creation of the Professional Accounting Centre comes at an opportune moment as pressures mount for the development of defensible, globalized standards, and for greater integrity, accuracy, clarity, and judgement in their application.
Tomorrow’s professional accountants will require a new set of knowledge and skills to function in highly competitive, globalized business environments. To succeed, they must understand the challenges facing businesses and the solutions available, and they must be able to provide effective leadership to arrive at the optimal resolutions expected.
The Professional Accounting Centre at the University of Toronto Mississauga is uniquely positioned to deliver positively on these developments. Our successful Master of Management & Professional Accounting (MMPA) program has an internationally respected reputation, built on a foundation of highly collaborative faculty with global reach, proven research ability, and significant contributions to the accounting profession. Our Master of Forensic Accounting (MFAcc) featuring ten dedicated courses, nine of which are delivered online, is the most comprehensive and innovative program of its type. Combined with our B.Com. (Accounting Specialist Stream) students, PAC is enhancing an exceptional pool of accounting professionals and setting a worldwide standard for others to match.
