Offered at ECC & MCC (Codes: EVACT & MVACT)

The Accounting curriculum prepares the student for employment as an accountant in government, industry and private accounting enterprises. Students who complete this accounting program may expect to enter the job market as payroll accountant, accounts payable and accounts receivable clerk, general bookkeeper or in other private accounting positions. Demand for accountants is stronger than the supply, so students seeking positions with an Associate of Applied Science degree also have good job prospects.
