The Accounting Post-Baccalaureate Diploma at Thompson Rivers University is of interest to students who have a non-business degree and want to return to university for one or two years to acquire a specialty in a functional area of business. 


A post-baccalaureate diploma will be of interest to students who have a non-business degree, and who want to return to university for one or two years to acquire a specialty in a functional area of business in order to enhance their employment opportunities. Students with a first degree in business, but who want to change their area of focus, may complete a post-baccalaureate diploma as well.

Post-baccalaureate diplomas are also valuable to international students who wish to come to Canada to learn English, gain exposure to the culture, and study in a compressed format. Many who do so have already studied business in their own country and have received transfer credit that reduces the length of the program.

The Accounting Post-Baccalaureate Diploma is offered at Thompson Rivers University.


Many students find that a specialty enhances their employment opportunities.

                            Admission requirements are the same for each of the post-baccalaureate diplomas. Prior to admission applicants must have completed:

                            • a bachelor degree
                            • at least six credits of university English
                            • the equivalent to Grade 12 mathematics (if required as a pre-requisite)

                            Those who have not completed as outline above can still be admitted to the program, but they must complete equivalent courses as approved by an academic advisor.
