More Than Business

SAF is more than just a business program

Experience Matters

For over 30 years, the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) has been launching business leaders of the world. We provide an education where experience matters.

All of our programs provide students with the technical, analytical, evaluative, and communication skills needed to prepare for successful careers in public accounting, finance, industry, government and not-for-profit sectors.

    Co-op work experience is key to developing career-ready skills and enhancing technical knowledge. But when the links between studies and curiosity takes you off the beaten path, it can be a good thing.

    An elective, ambition, and a natural sense of curiosity has led many graduates from the Masters of Accounting (MAcc) program to discovering a meaningful career path in business valuations.

    Where will I live?

    A misconception with university is that you have to live in residence in order to attend university. That is simply not true. Residence is not the only option for accommodations while in university and it is up to you to decide where you live. For a lot of students, living at home is a great option. For me, living at home is great because I live close to the university, and I would save a lot of money since I would not have to pay for living expenses.

    Expansion and Experience

    Having to stay in the same job for all my co-op terms was a concern when I first looked into co-op. With co-op, I would be able to experience different ways of working based on environment and the way my employer runs operations.
