This course enables students to effectively identify and utilize the complex systems and applications used in the accounting sector. Students will gain hands-on knowledge that will enable them to analyze and implement accounting systems within the framework of modern business environments, including privacy, security, and control systems needed to ensure client confidentiality and strategic advantage through the use of IT. This course qualifies as a prerequisite for entrance into the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Professional Education Program (PEP).
Class WILL NOT be held on September 30th (National Day for Truth and Reconciliation) & Thursday, November 11th (Remembrance Day). This course fulfills the CPA requirement for Information Technology.
