Course Information

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, information systems, finance and management. You’ll gain hands-on experience in industry-standard software such as Profile (personal and corporate tax), Access, Excel, SAGE 50 Accounting (formerly known as Simply Accounting) and Accpac Plus in our Accounting Centre. Learn the inner workings of the accounting field from expert faculty who will teach you key concepts in accounting and taxation related to buying, selling, financing and investing transactions.

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 students are in a competitive job placement market.

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.
