Waterloo Accounting and Finance

The School of Accounting and Finance was the first English speaking professional school of its kind in Canada. 

CPA logoOur undergraduate programs:

Our graduate programs:

​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.

In conjunction with the Faculties of Mathematics and Science, the School also administers 2 undergraduate programs:

and 1 graduate program

The School of Accounting and Finance has received the highest level of national accreditation under the new Chartered Professional Accountancy (CPA) National Accreditation Standards. The SAF's national accreditation provides customized pathways for SAF students to tailor their education for a direct route to the CPA designation. 

Students in the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM), Biotechnology/CPA, and Mathematics/CPA programs can combine their undergraduate studies with the Master of Accounting (MAcc) graduate program to move directly to the CPA Common Final Examination (CFE) after graduation.

The legacy transitional exemption was a show of confidence from CPA Ontario in how well the SAF has prepared graduates for professional accreditation in accounting.
