Accounting

Program Description:

 

The increasing complexities of the business environment have created the need for individuals who possess a greater diversity of skills. Interpersonal, communication, analytical, decision-making, customer service, and computer skills are essential for success in business. Mountwest Community & Technical College’s Management Technology program provides these skills and prepares students for entry-level positions in organizations with career paths that eventually lead to supervisory and management positions. The program also prepares employed individuals for upward mobility within their organizations.

The Accounting option prepares the student for a nonsupervisory position. This person performs a variety of complex clerical and entry level accounting activities applying accepted procedures to the preparation and maintenance of accounting and other records, and preparing financial, statistical, and/or technical reports to ensure accurate accounting records.
