Why did you decide to study the Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting program?
I prefer a guided approach when it comes to learning, and preferred the classroom setting of GDipPA over the self-study approach that would have been necessitated by the PEP program.
What are your main reasons for choosing Rotman?
I studied at Rotman Commerce for my undergraduate degree, so I was well acquainted with the quality of the professors at Rotman. There was also more information available on Rotman than other alternatives, because of the info sessions held throughout the year.
What are you looking forward to most in the program?
I’m most looking forward to developing skills relevant to the CFE under the tutelage of professors who have so much experience with the process. After just 2 weeks it has already become clear how knowledgeable they are in their respective subjects, and how capable they are of articulating the best approach to casewriting.
The Rotman Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting (GDipPA) is a CPA Accredited 12-week summer program that helps prepare you for the Common Final Examination (CFE) and satisfies the four modules of the CPA PEP.
