To fund new first term accounting project
TORONTO, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - The Certified Management Accountants of Ontario
(CMA Ontario) is pleased to announce a further commitment to its continued
partnership with the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University, Ottawa,
The ongoing relationship with the CMA accredited Bachelor of Commerce
(Honours) program will support a new first term accounting project where the
students will work with a month's worth of financial transactions for a
hypothetical business, posting the details into accounting software and
analyzing the end results. This project then extends into the management
accounting classroom where students will deal with a manufacturing environment
and a job costing system.
On November 22, Merv Hillier, CEO and President of CMA Ontario, will
present a $20,000 cheque to Dean Roland Thomas at the "Not for Bean Counters
Luncheon and Networking Event", an on-campus function where students will meet
and interact with leaders from the Ottawa business community.
"We are fortunate to have dedicated professors who are committed to
educating business students with a strong knowledge of the accounting
discipline," said Professor Jacques Maurice, Sprott School of Business. "This
investment from CMA Ontario will ensure we can continue to provide an
innovative and high quality curriculum for students."
"Certified Management Accountant education is based on the three
expertise pillars of management, strategy and accounting. The Honours Bachelor
of Commerce degree, with an accounting concentration at the Sprott School of
Business, prepares students extremely well in all facets of the CMA
designation," said Jacques Tremblay, Regional Director, CMA Ontario. "Carleton
students understand the importance of being adept in all areas of business and
combining an accounting designation with their management or consulting
careers. Students attending this networking session will begin their careers
with a bang."
