The India Diploma in Intermediate Accounting (DIAc) program is identical to the regular DIAc program and provides students with a core curriculum designed to thoroughly introduce them to financial and management accounting concepts. Students with a non-business or non-Canadian degree interested in the Master of Accounting (MAcc) program must first complete the DIAc.

Eligible students holding a three-year undergraduate degree from a recognized Indian institution (see requirement checklist below for further details) can only join the India DIAc program. Students with a four-year degree from an Indian institution can choose to join either the India DIAc program or the regular DIAc program commencing Term 0 in Toronto. Students admitted to the India DIAc program complete Term 0 of the program in Hyderabad, India, and then join the rest of the DIAc students in Toronto from Term 1 onwards.
