Whether students plan to pursue a career in accounting and business or simply want to learn how to manage their personal finances responsibly, the Accounting and Business Program prepares them for life after high school graduation. While the instructors’ goal is to provide for students a solid educational foundation on which to build post-secondary studies, the authentic, practical education they offer invites students to develop the skills necessary to obtain a job in the accounting or business field without additional schooling. Students exercise math, interpersonal, time management, organization, critical thinking and creativity skills to create, market, and account for a business. Classes provide a first-hand experience that extends beyond the classroom through internships in the community. Accounting and Business students are often publicly recognized for their contributions to the field and real-world application of their work.
