The accounting program – corporate major curriculum gives students the solid foundation in accounting theory that is necessary for entry-to upper-level accounting positions and career advancement. Job opportunities include corporate accounting in the areas of financial information preparation, reporting, and analysis or cost accounting; governmental accounting; not-for-profit accounting; and accounting for partnerships or sole proprietorships.
The goal is that students successfully completing the accounting program – corporate major will be exposed to all the tools and skills necessary to be successful in an accounting career. They will have covered all the technical knowledge required and practiced its application. In addition, they will have been exposed to all of the technical subject material covered on the Uniform CPA Exam. Students will demonstrate their acquired knowledge and abilities throughout the program within individual classes and in the capstone course.
The current business environment requires all prospective employees to have good communication skills, both written and oral, and to be able to interact with co-workers and clients in a professional manner. Employers also expect workers to have strong computational skills, to be computer literate and to be able to think critically. All students completing a program at Stark State College will be introduced, provided practice in, and be expected to master these basic competencies.
