As society becomes more complex, trained personnel are needed to interpret and manage the fiscal aspects of business and industry. The curriculum is designed either as a transfer or career program. Career-oriented students are prepared for beginning positions in public and private accounting. Typical positions for which graduates are qualified include: junior account clerk, assistant*auditor, cost accounting clerk, and assistant office manager.
Students who plan to transfer to a four-year business program are urged to see a counselor or the division director for guidance regarding the transferability of courses to the four-year program. Courses listed under Naugatuck Valley’s business programs may not automatically transfer to a four-year college.
Students also have the opportunity to join the Accounting/Finance Club.
General Education Core course listings and definitions appear on General Education Core. Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required.
