Accounting is a lot like putting together the pieces of a puzzle. When you first look at that puzzle, its pieces strewn about so that you can't see the whole picture, it's easy to imagine a business in the same situation, except its money that's strewn around. Without a method, it's difficult to see where you've been, or where you're going. Sound like any businesses you know?
Students interested in taking a two year Business Administration diploma with a concentration in accounting will find entry-level employment in the field of financial accounting, cost accounting, financial management, taxation, auditing, payroll, or office management.
Courses in this concentration typically include financial accounting (manual) along with computerized accounting (electronic) and are specifically geared toward the retail, government, banking, manufacturing, and other service sectors.
It's important to note that there's a big difference between taking a second year concentration in accounting, and actually getting your designation as a Certified General Accountant (CGA). That type of designation requires further study at a university (either traditional classroom or through online learning).
Accountants and bookkeepers play an important role in industry. They make sure all of the financial checks and balances are in place to meet auditing expectations, perform budget analysis, financial planning, investment planning, information technology consulting and sometimes manage limited legal services.
