It provides the student with a broad based education that will qualify them for an entry level position in accounting. Typical entry level positions include: accounts receivable or accounts payable clerks, junior accountants, account clerks, inventory controllers, and full-charge bookkeepers.

The program also provides the student with a strong background in computers. The computer related courses include Introduction to Computer Applications, Computerized Accounting, and Spreadsheets.
