Building Relationships, Investing in the Future
At Crowe MacKay, it is our core value to invest in our people. We believe through building relationships we can redefine the accounting industry, creating exceptional leaders for our future.
All Crowe MacKay students are a part of the firm’s mentorship program. The purpose of this program is to deliver a consistent process to provide clarity and build confidence at the candidate level. We do this by:
Every CFE candidate at Crowe MacKay will have a mentor through their study program. We work hard to ensure the mentorship program is adapted for every student’s needs, ensuring candidates are supported throughout their journey with access to the same opportunities, including receiving at least 20 hours of invested mentorship. Crowe MacKay mentors stay with you till the end. This means receiving the technical support to succeed on your exam, as well as the mental health support to stay healthy through the process. We believe in a holistic approach and focus on your mental health throughout your studies. This includes strategies to manage stress and unforeseen circumstances that may arise during the study program. We’re confident that when you do the work, you will pass.
Together, with your mentor, you will follow a schedule of key dates that will connect all Crowe MacKay students across northern and western Canada. While our teams span across eight offices, we work tirelessly to create a connected community dedicated to success. This includes students receiving timely feedback on all practice exams, and even goes as far as how your CFE Binder is prepared. Opportunity is equal for all candidates.
While we provide students with the tools to succeed, we empower you to be accountable to your success. You will learn the importance of communication and implement strategies with your mentor as you progress through the program. Our team will engage you to critically think throughout your studies as you debrief concepts and execute related action items. Through every module and exam, you will track your success - this is how you will set your goals. In identifying your areas of strength and those which require more attention, you and your mentor will set realistic goals by focusing on one or two action items at a time. You will begin to see results in real time.
CFE candidates not only receive mentorship from Crowe MacKay professionals but also training from Canada’s leading CPA education provider, Densmore. The Densmore CFE Prep program provides excellence in teaching consisting of online case-based training and supplemental online sessions in preparing students for their Capstone courses and CFE. You will be equipped with Densmore’s study schedule and resources including workbooks, online tax technical refresher, in depth sessions, and a video conference with Densmore trainers allowing you to address and refocus on any problem areas in the final two weeks of studying. We’re committed to building a team of support around you to help you achieve your first career milestone.
