With Coursework Emphasis in Accounting or Management

The Accounting Emphasis in the Associate of Applied Science Business Administration Program prepares students for entry into the accounting field as bookkeepers, accounting clerks, or accounting assistants who perform routine calculations, posting duties, check items on reports, summarize and post data in designated books and perform a variety of other duties such as preparing invoices or monthly statements, preparing payrolls, verifying bank accounts, keeping record files and making periodic reports of business activities.

The Management Emphasis in the Associate of Applied Science Business Administration Program focuses on management principles, marketing, accounting, office management and small business management.
