When I was debating between two co-op job offers, one as a forensic accountant at a public accounting firm, and the other as a financial analyst at a software company, I met an industry professional at a networking event and had a great conversation with him that helped me decide.

The Most Important Lessons I Learned in My First Year of University

During my COVID-19 home quarantine I have had some time to reflect on my first year of university. Below are the three most important things that I learned:

Thinking of taking the CFE in the future? Become a SAF graduate!

Nishi Shah School of Accounting and Finance

I always try to give 110% in everything I do and push myself to complete the best work I am capable of. This approach was no different when preparing for the Common Final Examination (CFE). While I gave 110% when studying for the CFE, I never thought I would make the honour roll. Much to my surprise though, I actually did! Though I probably wouldn’t have been able to do it without the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF).

The Big Beautiful World of Tax

Fei Teng School of Accounting and Finance

To put it simply, I love tax.

I initially got into tax because of my courses at the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF). I found that the professors that taught had an immense amount of experience and credibility straight from the industry.

The Importance of Experiential Learning

Hanning Cai School of Accounting and Finance

It’s no secret that the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) is one of the best of its kind in the country. The Accounting and Financial Management program (AFM) and the Master’s of Accounting programs offer so many courses in accounting, tax, financial management, and more.

The Endless Possibilities

Every university student’s most dreaded question is probably: What do you plan to do after you get your degree? Some of you may already know, which is great! But if you’re like me and still have no idea, that’s fine too! Even after being named to the Common Final Examination (CFE) Honour Roll, I am still not 100% sure what my professional career is going to look like.
