Goodman prof to discuss experience teaching competency-based curriculum

Students have been enrolling in Brock’s Master of Accounting (MAcc) program since 2014 to fast-track their path to their CPA designation.

However, having a graduate program that fulfills CPA Canada’s Professional Education Program requirements has presented its own challenges and opportunities.

This week’s Goodman Luncheon Speaker Series will feature Pascale Lapointe Antunes, Associate Professor of Accounting at Goodman School of Business, as she shares what she’s learned about competency-based accounting education based on her experience with the MAcc program.

The talk will run Friday, Nov. 9 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in Goodman School of Business Room 310. Goodman faculty, staff and graduate students are invited to attend.

Lapointe Antunes is the 2018 Goodman School of Business Excellence in Teaching Award recipient and has also received the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario’s highest honour in the accounting profession with the title of Fellow and receiving the FCPA designation.

The speaker series provides an informal opportunity to listen to and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues.

Brock community members interested in attending the talk can email Jennifer Brisson at to reserve a seat.
