Accounting & Information Systems (AOS)

The health and success of an organization is closely tied to its financials, and every company has one or more accountants watching this vital information on their team. Accountants work in every industry, in every kind of organization. They perform a variety of roles including: recording and analyzing financial information; processing accounts payable and receivable data; planning and budgeting; and reporting on the financial well-being of their organization. With a program like Accounting and Information Systems, you develop the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and technology training necessary to work alongside accountants as established business professionals to keep businesses functioning efficiently.

YOU MIGHT LIKE THIS PROGRAM IF:

  • Leveraging your problem solving, mathematical, and management skills to help others would be fulfilling for you.
  • A career that allows you to make significant contributions to your organization through enhancing production and creating efficiency is something you would enjoy.
  • You’d eventually like to obtain your bachelor’s (or master’s!) degree, but earning your associate’s degree and getting some work experience under your belt first sounds like a good idea.
