Accounting Program Description
The proposed Accounting degree program provides an affordable means for students to complete the first two years of a degree in accounting, which will generate a pipeline of students prepared for transfer. These students serve to address the documented workforce development needs for accountants and auditors.&nbsp; The primary goal of the Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Accounting is to provide a degree, in both face-to-face and online formats, that is designed for students intending to transfer to a baccalaureate program. The program design is in a format that will provide maximum flexibility in choice of electives based on the requirements of the four-year receiving institution. <br> <br>Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to: demonstrate mastery of financial and managerial accounting concepts sufficient for further study in the discipline; demonstrate the ability to organize, process, and report relevant managerial accounting information for use in planning and decision-making; calculate, interpret, and/or analyze key macroeconomic and microeconomic indicators for the U.S. economy; recognize the impact that business laws, rules and regulations have on society, businesses and individuals; and create, design, and deliver effective and well-organized oral and written presentations utilizing state-of-the-art technology. <br>
