CURRICULAR GUIDE

Managerial Accounting
Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 0247  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2007)

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 Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

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.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.
