Accounting - Associate in Business Studies


Program Code: ABS.10172

The accounting degree in either track is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills for entry level positions which require performing accounting functions. Complexity of work and level of responsibility will vary with the level of education attained. Students may follow either Track.

Track 1: This track is designed to provide the skills to be an accounting assistant. Complexity of the work will vary with the size and volume of the employee's activities and the firm's procedures. Most starting jobs will involve tasks such as keeping records of day-to-day business transactions, making entries in account ledgers, monitoring cash receipts and disbursements, processing appropriate budgetary costing procedures, and preparing materials needed for financial reports. As you gain experience, you may assume more accounting responsibilities which could involve analyzing financial reports and advising management.

Track 2: This track is designed to provide a basic foundation for entry level positions and is suggested for students who may pursue a professional accounting career with leadership/management potential. Students should follow this track if they plan to transfer to a 4-year college or university. Consult with a counselor and refer to www.delta.edu/artic for transfer programs.
