Financial Management

Archbishop O'Leary's Financial Management program focuses on 3 main areas.  Students learn to use both Microsoft Excel and either Sage Simply Accounting or QuickBooks to manage financial information.


  • Accounting cycle service businesses
  • Retail business accounting
Quite simply, accounting is a language: a language that provides information about the financial position of an organization. When you study accounting you are essentially learning this specialized language. By learning this language you can communicate and understand the financial operations of any and all types of organizations.


  • Personal Taxation

  • Small Business Taxation

Taxation includes tax compliance and reporting, tax-planning and implementation strategies for both corporate and personal taxpayers, as well as the administrative processes involved in Canadian taxation.


Personal Finance

  • Personal Financial Management
  • Personal Investment Planning
  • Personal Portfolio Management
Personal finance is the financial management which an individual or a family unit performs to budget, save, and spend monetary resources over time, taking into account various financial risks and future life events. When planning personal finances, the individual would consider the suitability to his or her needs of a range of banking products (checking, savings accounts, credit cards and consumer loans) or investment (stock market,bonds, mutual funds) and insurance (life insurance, health insurance, disability insurance) products or participation and monitoring of individual- or employer-sponsored retirement plans, social security benefits, and income tax management.
