One Year MMPA

The One Year MMPA prepares students for leadership careers of the future. These are some of the key benefits of the One Year MMPA:

Fast-track learning

The One Year MMPA is designed specifically for domestic students with an accounting-focused undergraduate degree from a Canadian university. Students in the One Year MMPA gain the same knowledge and skills as those in the Two Year MMPA within an accelerated time frame.

CPA accreditation

The MMPA program is accredited by CPA Ontario, giving students a head start on obtaining their CPA designation. MMPA graduates are able to move directly to the final module (Capstone 2) of the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP) and then onto the CPA Common Final Exam (CFE).
