Associate Degree

About the Program

In business, managers at all levels must have updated financial information in order to make decisions that ensure the success of their firms. Accountants and auditors prepare, analyze and verify financial reports and data that furnish this essential information to their companies.

The Accounting program is designed to help develop the skills necessary for the highly technical and rapidly changing business environment.  In addition, students can add three industry recognized credentials that are built into the Accounting Associate Degree program.  These include:

  • Quickbooks Certified User Certification (ACC 240)
  • Microsoft Office Specialist Excel Certification (ACC 245)
  • Sage User Certification (ACC 246)

This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs. To comply with the reporting requirements of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and the ACBSP, academic assessment information and key performance indicators specific to the MTC Business Programs can be found in the attached tables.

Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses offered within the Business and Public Service Department for the grade to be counted toward graduation. Specifically, these include courses with the following prefixes: ACC, BAF, BUS, MGT, and MKT.

Learning experiences for students in the Accounting program are provided in classrooms on the Airport and Beltline campuses, as well as online.
