Leadership Development Pathways


Organizations never stand still for long, and neither should you. CPA Ontario and The Ivey Academy at Ivey Business School have partnered to deliver professional leadership development tailored for emerging and established CPAs alike.


Combining the strength of The Ivey Academy’s top-ranked executive development with CPA Ontario’s robust professional standards, this unique learning experience is your chance to get ahead of the curve and effect organizational change with confidence and poise.

Choose one of two distinct learning pathways designed to meet the specific needs of CPAs across their individual leadership journeys. Each pathway fosters modern leadership and skill development through a series of case-based, experiential Ivey courses, awarding either a Certificate in Leadership or a Certificate in Executive Leadership. Ivey’s real-world case methodology isn’t about textbooks and lectures – it’s about learning by doing.

Working directly with expert Ivey faculty in live virtual sessions, you’ll identify practical takeaways through deep discussion and simulations, before developing an implementation plan to tackle specific challenges at work. And since peer-learning is at the heart of each pathway, you’ll collaborate and network with CPAs from a variety of industries and sectors.

To further enhance your leadership knowledge and skills, earn the Master Certificate by completing two additional courses and a capstone project in your chosen pathway.

This powerful credential from Canada’s top business school and preeminent professional association will prepare you for the next stage of your career – no matter where it takes you.
