The Accounting and Finance curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge
and the skills necessary for employment and growth in the accounting profession. Using
the "language of business," accountants assemble and analyze, process, and communicate
essential information about financial operations.
In addition to course work in accounting principles, theories, and practice, students
will study business law, finance, management, and economics. Related skills are developed
through the study of communications, computer applications, financial analysis, critical
thinking skills, and ethics. Both degree and certificates can be completed online.
Graduates should qualify for entry-level accounting positions in many types of organizations
including accounting firms, small businesses, manufacturing firms, banks, hospitals,
school systems, and governmental agencies. With work experience and additional education,
an individual may advance in the accounting profession.
