Program Description

The professional MAccFin degree program is offered over 16 months using a cohort-based model. In this four-session program, students must be registered full-time and complete a sequence of courses. This program begins in the Summer session.

The MAccFin program is designed for applicants who have not yet entered the workforce. These pre-experience applicants apply to the program immediately after completing their undergraduate degree. Applicants complete the School of Graduate Studies online admissions application and submit all official transcripts, two reference letters, and a resumé. Applicants must submit a supplemental application form to the Department of Management, UTSC.

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • An appropriate four-year undergraduate degree with a specialization in accounting or equivalent, with a minimum overall average of a mid-B in all core courses. Admission to the program is extremely competitive, and meeting the minimum overall average does not guarantee admission.

    • A Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of at least 580 overall on the paper-based test and 5 on the Test of Written English (TWE); 100/120 on the Internet-based test and 22/30 on the writing and speaking sections.
