The associate degree in accounting technology provides students with a broad range of practical accounting skills, communication skills, team work experience and general studies. These combined skills prepare students for immediate entry into the accounting technology field in numerous environments including manufacturing, retail, service and governmental organizations.
The associate's degree is granted after the successful completion of 63 semester hours of coursework.
