Under this agreement, students who reside in Mauritius will complete Foundation Studies (Levels 1 – 3) through the recently launched SIAST (Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology) Business Administration Diploma Program in Mauritius, offered in partnership with the Mauritius Institute of Training and Development (MITD) and will be able to enter the CGA program at Level 4 – Advanced Studies.
All students will be required to have a university degree that is assessed as equivalent to a Canadian university degree. The degree may be in any discipline, not just accounting or business. Students who do not hold a degree will be able to enroll in the Laurentian University H.B.Com (Hons.) online degree jointly administered with CGA. This degree combines versatile management education and core business skills that compliment CGA’s accounting and financial management professional studies.
Upon completion of Level 4 – Advanced Studies and satisfying the degree requirement, students will be able to enroll in the CGA Professional Level Courses: PACE, Professional Applications & Competence Evaluations. The PACE courses are designed to provide students with the technical, professional, leadership, and general management competencies required of a newly certified CGA. PACE requires the completion of four professional applications courses — two electives and two capstones.
The capstone courses are Issues in Professional Practice (PA1) and Strategic Financial Management (PA2). In these two courses, students advance and demonstrate their abilities to integrate and apply professional competencies from the broad spectrum of financial management knowledge (including accounting, tax planning, assurance, finance, management information systems, strategy, etc.) they have studied and experienced; from the perspective of an external business advisor in PA1 to an organization’s internal financial manager in PA2.
The PACE elective component requires two courses selected from six options, allowing for 15 different combinations. These electives will provide you the opportunity to focus your professional preparation in the area that supports your personal career goals and interests.
The CGA Learning Process
CGA’s program of professional studies is designed to offer students the opportunity to study part-time while pursuing full-time employment and career advancement. The program offers four sessions annually (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer); students normally register for one course in a session. CGA’s innovative course design integrates technology, using online learning resources for delivery and a wide range of leading business software to provide students the ‘hands-on’ opportunity to use technology as an effective business decision tool.
The application of knowledge through practical experience, concurrent with the study of conceptual knowledge, is integral to developing a well-rounded professional. Further, the freedom to obtain experience in a variety of accounting and financial management positions is one of the major advantages of CGA’s certification process. CGA practical experience is assessed on the basis of professional competencies. To qualify for certification, all candidates must demonstrate a specific set of competencies through approved work experience. This generally requires 36 months of full-time employment experience.
