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.
Any given course may only be used to satisfy one of the competency areas even if it is listed under more than one.
1 Selection of Finance courses should be made in consultation with Accounting faculty advisor.
