|Description:||As business and management techniques become more complex, the management of financial resources and the provision of management information assume greater importance. In short, administrators of business, industrial, and governmental organizations need staff with specific training in accounting to handle this increased complexity.
The objectives of the program are to provide the student with a good working knowledge of accounting and information systems, and to understand the accountant's role in those systems. Accounting and information systems include familiarity with computer applications in business, understanding of quantitative analysis techniques and derivation of meaningful relationships in financial data. This program is recommended for those who want to pursue careers in accounting, who expect to make extensive use of accounting in their jobs or who wish to use their expertise as financial managers.
