MFAc - Financial Accountability

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MFAc degree will provide a value-added educational experience through seeking solutions to some of the toughest and most pressing challenges in the field such as the global financial crisis, the growing credit crunch and the collapse of the United States subprime mortgage market. The MFAc is the only program in Canada to offer a specialized focus in financial accountability and consists of four dynamic and interrelated conceptual cornerstones: (1) Corporate Ethics; (2) Regulative Standards and Legislative Requirements; (3) Effective Information Systems; and (4) Transparency in Financial Reporting (the program’s ultimate goal). The cornerstones are well reflected in eight core courses and five optional courses to be taught by nationally and/or internationally recognized faculty members. The program is also distinguished by its orientation towards accredited and experienced practicing professionals with designations such as the CA, CGA, CMA or CPA who are encountering an increased demand for specialized skills and knowledge unique to the area of financial accountability.
