Accounting Technology A.A.S.
Lisa Swallow, Director
Almost all organizations need either in-house financial staff or outside bookkeeping/accounting services to aid with financial data compilation and reporting. Bookkeepers and accountants maintain financial records and often participate in strategic planning and other fiscal decisions. Graduates work in small businesses as full charge bookkeepers or large businesses as members of an accounting staff. They are required to communicate extensively with vendors, clients, and employees and are often key players in business projections, cash forecasting, and budgeting. This program provides students the marketable skills for employability in a variety of organizations including service, retail, non-profit, governmental, and accounting firms. Program graduates use technology to gather, compile and analyze data. They communicate budgetary and accounting information to non-financial colleagues and managers. Students considering this program should be analytical, detail-oriented, and enjoy using current technology.
