Accounting Concentration (ACCT)

Associate degree programs in the Department of Business Administration are nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

The Accounting concentration assists students in developing analytical skills through a critical exploration of the fundamentals of accounting and the use of accounting for decision-making purposes. Students use the latest technology to perform various accounting functions. In addition, students work on developing communication, interpersonal, leadership, and teamwork skills. This concentration prepares students for entry-level positions such as accounting clerk, staff accountant, accounting assistant, bookkeeper, assistant auditor and tax preparer in public, private and governmental agencies. Students also may choose to transfer to four-year institutions to earn bachelor’s degrees and should consult colleges for information on transferable courses.

Note: Many courses require prerequisites, corequisites and/or testing. See course descriptions for details.
