Valedictorian Deepak Bhagat

Deepak is graduating from the Professional Accounting Practice Graduate certificate program. Having already completed undergraduate and master’s degrees in India, Deepak came to Canada to gain international experience and education. Of the postsecondary programs recommended to him by colleagues and career consultants, Seneca’s program stood out above the rest. The intensive one-year program included several courses like financial accounting that Deepak was interested in learning more about. At Seneca, he appreciated the opportunity to meet diverse classmates from different cultures. He also enjoyed the real-life examples his professors would share in class, which made him even more passionate about his courses. While studying, Deepak competed in the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario Case Competition, making it to the final round. In his free time, he volunteered regularly at the Daily Bread Food Bank. Now, with a particular interest in auditing, Deepak has accepted a position with accounting firm KPMG.
