MGAD70*


* As MGAD70 is not a mandatory course for students who are currently candidates or graduates of the University of Toronto Scarborough – B.B.A. (Specialist in Management and Accounting), it is not always offered. As such, the course will not be included in estimating the overall average or minimum course requirements necessary for admission into the G. Dip. P.A. Applicants who are not graduates of, or currently in, the University of Toronto Scarborough – B.B.A. (Specialist in Management and Accounting) must have taken MGAD70 in addition to the other required courses, and all these course grades must exceed 60% and will be included when calculating their overall average for entry into the program.
