Program Description for Accounting Management

The Accounting Management program provides the fundamentals necessary to be able to solve business-oriented accounting problems. Students obtain extensive hands-on experience working "real-world" accounting problems including: payroll, cost and tax. Students learn how to maintain reliable accounting records both manually and in a computerized environment. Perhaps more importantly, students learn how to interpret and communicate accounting information to non-accounting personnel for organizational use.
