The introductory accounting certificate is designed to meet the needs of nonaccounting personnel and managers who feel they require knowledge of accounting to advance in their professions. It can also be used by individuals who are interested in pursuing new careers in accounting and need to learn the major elements. Students without a background in economics, basic mathematics, and statistics are encouraged to take courses in those subjects before starting the certificate program. With appropriate choice of courses, this certificate may be completed while pursuing the Bachelor of Science in accounting.
