    Depends on the program …
    Accounting diploma by itself isn’t very useful. Those serious about accounting (and want to make any decent amount of wages) need the CPA – which require the equivalent of a bachelors degree, particular accounting courses, and 4 years of related work experience. The diploma would help you get those requirements. By then the employer wouldn’t care where you got the diploma.

    Not to mention accounting (or most business fields for that matter) is hyper-competitive with crowds of new grads every year – and people are generally happy to see trade income after 8+ years of school and work experience – where then you’d start your journey as an actual chartered accountant. The people you see around the $80,000/year range likely have been studying for 8+ years and working for years on top of that – and the ones better off are usually in senior management and put many years in – where by then they aren’t ‘just’ accountants.

  2. I took the Nait accounting diploma and had a job before I even graduated. I found classes were a reasonable size (20-30) and it’s all very hands on, not lecture style but actual learning and solving problems hands on. But I’ve heard grant macewan is more lecture style? Not 100% sure as I only studied at Nait and loved the experience.
