Business Administration - Accounting


Advanced Diploma


Program Code: 02111

Campus: North

Length: 6 semesters starting in September

Humber’s Business Administration – Accounting advanced diploma program covers a number of areas including accounting theory, procedures and best practices. Detailed instruction is provided in bookkeeping, auditing, taxation, business law, data analytics, information systems, finance and management. You’ll gain hands-on experience in industry-standard software such as Profile (personal and corporate tax), Access, Excel, PowerBI, SAGE 50 Accounting (formerly known as Simply Accounting) and Accpac Plus. You will learn accounting from industry-connected faculty who will provide you with practical, hands-on accounting training to help you get ahead. Our program’s versatile range of courses helps you to also develop broad-based business skills including human resource administration, business writing, macroeconomics and finance. 

Outside of the classroom, our students are supported by our full-time dedicated help resources in the Humber Accounting Centre.

 

Optional Co-op Work Placement Program

There are a limited number of spaces for students to mix co-op work experience with their academic learning in alternating semesters through an optional co-op program. This co-op program is structured to include from one to three co-op work terms taking place between academic terms. Participation in the co-op program may increase time to complete the diploma by one to three semesters. The optional co-op program provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable experience. Co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as the job placement opportunities are competitive. Applications to the co-op program are accepted only from students in Semester 2.

Students not selected for co-op placements will complete the standard 84-hour work placement course in their final semester. Through this course, they will put their accounting knowledge and skills into practice. Students find a placement with support from the business placement advisor who maintains a roster of placement opportunities and provides students with direction and assistance in the development of resumés and job search techniques.
