The contemporary accountant is a valued associate in business, industry and non-profit organizations. Because of their vast knowledge of business, accountants analyze data and make decisions which greatly impact the American and international marketplace. Perhaps no one else in an organization sees “the big picture” like the accountant. This is the reason that accountants frequently are promoted to senior-level management.
Recognizing the various facets of the profession, accounting students at NCCC receive a broad-based education, both theoretical and practical. Courses in the curriculum not only cover the principles of accounting but also include computers, economics, business and management which provide a solid background and enhance the student’s career potential.
