What will I learn?
Our two-year Business diploma program is offered full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Moose Jaw. The first year provides a well-rounded foundation in core business concepts, including accounting, finance, management, computers, marketing, human resources, insurance and more. The second year allows you to specialize in one of the following areas of expertise. Note that in Year 1 - Semester 2, students must take one of either ACCT 125 or ACCT 225.
Accounting is about more than numbers, it's about conducting audits, doing business analyses and presenting financial information so managers and investors can make informed decisions. Accounting is often called the language of business. If you want to be one of the people at the table when critical business decisions are being made, Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business accountancy specialty will appeal to you.
You'll study cost accounting, auditing, taxation, finance, quantitative methods and more. You'll apply theory to real-world situations in business simulations, case studies and group projects. You'll use industry standard software in your courses. Optional co-operative education work terms are a great way to gain valuable experience and make industry connections - while earning money.
You can apply to use your diploma for credit in a degree program at the University of Regina's Paul Hill School of Business or online degree programs at University Canada West and Husson University/University of Fredericton.
Use your credits to apply for advanced standing toward professional designations in accounting or auditing. The Canadian accounting profession is undergoing a national unification initiative, so, with the right preparation, you'll be first in line for the new unified Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic accountancy specialists are in demand. Many grads have jobs lined up before they graduate. You'll find opportunities in every sector: commercial, industrial, institutional, government and non-profit. You could work for an accounting firm or in the accounting department of a private company or government department.
