CURRICULAR GUIDE

Managerial Accounting
Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 0247  (Effective Fall 2000 - Summer 2005)

This program combines study in Accounting and Quality Assurance.  Historically
these skills lead to jobs in manufacturing.  Today, however, service,
merchandising, and governmental organizations are emphasizing cost and quality
control.  There should be an increasing demand for graduates of this program
to assist management in budgeting, pricing, problem solving, statistical
analysis, and controlling costs and quality.  Job titles might be quality
control auditor or cost accountant.  Not all courses in this program transfer
to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor
or counselor before enrolling in any course.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  For information on how to fulfill all general education
requirements, see page 23.
