Ethics is the cornerstone on which all sound professions build their reputation and instil trust in those they serve. CGAs and students are pledged to adhere to a strict Code of Ethical Principles and Rules of Conduct. This renowned code is one of the chief reasons why business holds the CGA designation in such high esteem. To assist in learning and applying the business ethics that will guide students in their professional accounting careers, all CGA courses include references to, and instruction in, professional business ethics as outlined in the Association’s Ethics Readings Handbook. This handbook is made available to students in the CGA program as part of the online course material package.
