The Master of Forensic Accounting - ASO Program


The Master of Forensic Accounting - Advanced Standing Option (ASO) will allow DIFA graduates advanced standing for six of the ten MFAcc courses. This means that if you successfully complete the four new MFAcc courses, and an August residency session in 2018, 2019 or 2020, you will be awarded an MFAcc degree.

The University plans to offer the ASO for the final time in 2020.

In January 2020, the first course for the ASO program for 2020 will begin - IFA1905H. The four courses will follow one after the other finishing at the residency session in August 2020.

Each course will be taught one evening per week, plus the 6-day residency at UTM. In 2020 the classes will be held on Thursday evenings.  This is the FINAL offering and the application system is now open.
