Accounting practicums (known outside of British Columbia as 'internships') are an important next step for accounting majors, and business administration students. Placements in accounting are either with accounting firms, or in the accounting departments of larger manufacturing and service firms. At accounting firms, you will work in close partnership with a CGA/CMA, you will train on and use accounting software and spreadsheet programs such as Excel. You will assist with day-to-day office administration, and also assist with financial statements for outside companies. Working within the accounting departments of non-accounting firms, you will be a junior member of a larger team. You will help out with accounts receivable and payable, with payroll, and with financial statements.
