The programs at the Goodman School of Business are not only designed to meet degree requirements but also the requirements for a variety of professional designations.
The following are some common professional designations and information on how our programs can help work towards these designations.
Brock's Bachelor of Accounting (BAcc) program prepares students to practice accounting either in industry or obtain a public accounting license. At qualification, new Canadian CPAs will demonstrate the competencies expected of leading professional accountants. Specifically they will be required to demonstrate:
While financial reporting and management accounting will be central, the CPA certification program will require the demonstration of competence in all six competency areas: financial reporting, strategy and governance, management accounting, audit and assurance, finance, and taxation. Brock's proposed pathway to the CPA designation ensures that students obtain all required competencies.
To earn the CFA, you must successfully pass through the CFA Program, a graduate-level self-study program that combines a broad curriculum with professional conduct requirements, culminating in a series of three sequential exams. The course of study in the CFA program is determined by the Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK).
Brock's BBA Finance concentration degree program (or FNCE 3P96, FNCE 4P04 and FNCE 4P16 as a minimum) can prepare students for the CFA program, however, the CFA Institute can better advise you on the tools you need to be successful. Find out more about how you can make the CFA program work for you.
The Centre for Innovation, Management and Enterprise Education (CIMEE) with the Goodman School of Business periodically offers a full exam preparation program for students planning to write the upcoming CFA exam. Information on course availability and registration procedures.

The Goodman School of Business and the CPSA have partnered to develop a Professional Sales Certificate program for students in the BBA, B.Comm and MBA programs.
Successful graduates of this program will meet the requirements to receive a Professional Sales Certificate (PSC) issued by the Canadian Professional Sales Association (CPSA). The PSC reflects the core "Key Competencies in Sales" and conveys fundamental skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for success in an entry-level sales position. It also fulfills the CPSA's educational requirements for accreditation as a Certified Sales Professional (CSP).
