TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2013 – Queen’s School of Business (QSB) graduates gathered at the Westin Harbour Castle to celebrate their success on the annual Chartered Accountants’ Uniform Evaluation (UFE) exam at a special reception hosted by the School. The country’s newest CAs were also in town for the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario Annual Convocation ceremony.

Over the last nine years, Queen’s graduates have achieved a 90 per cent or higher pass rate on the exam — which is unprecedented in Canada. This year, Queen’s Bachelor of Commerce graduates achieved a pass rate average in excess of 95 per cent for first time examination writers.

The reception was hosted by accounting professors George Boland and David McConomy. A highlight of the evening was the announcement that $760 had been raised by these appreciative Commerce grads. Their donation to the Canadian Cancer Society was made in honour of Prof. McConomy.
