York’s Post-Graduate Certificate in Advanced Professional Accounting will provide advanced accounting skills and the leadership competencies critical to success in getting hired and promoted.

This program responds to the growing needs of industry professionals and employers by offering formal, integrated advanced accounting education, skill validation, and credentialing. Success in your career requires more than just technical accounting knowledge. To excel, you will also develop the broad skillset top employers tell us they value most – including emotional intelligence, problem solving, written and verbal communications, business acumen, strategic thinking, and professional judgment, decision making, and project management. The focus on these leadership competencies throughout your coursework and your capstone project will improve your managerial strength and effectiveness. The program culminates with a capstone course — a tangible way to showcase your knowledge to potential employers.

This has been by far the most horrible and disappointing experience. A $10 course on Udemy will teach you far more than this course. If you are really motivated to change your career, this certificate is NOT the right platform. This is nothing but a money-grab for the university. 80% of the course was just one slide after another. Out of five just one teacher (1020) made an effort and provided a decent education. Towards the end The Capstone project experience was pretty bad as well. It was conducted very unprofessionally.

So far I've had few interviews and as long as you can crack the coding challenge and have couple of projects on GIT under your belt, no one gives a crap about whether you have this so called certificate from the university.

I'm on course 2 of 5. I opted for this offering as it was relatively quick, and I needed online.

You will do best in this certificate if you are good at learning by reading. It is very light on lectures so far, and very heavy on reading (either online texts or paper options). It is also rather automated, so most of the human interaction is with your fellow classmates. The purpose of the instructors appears to be to record brief podcasts (8-30 minutes per week) that can be used over and over until they need to be updated. The instructors also give credibility to the courses by displaying their backgrounds in the field. Likely they may even do marking.

One great way of bonding with your fellow classmates is to complain about the learning platform, Moodle, but we do so in external channels (such as Discord, WhatsApp, email) as those are faster than using the Forum and you can swear to your hearts content.
