These courses should provide the student with the necessary computer skills to effectively communicate and present data and materials to co-workers and clients. The students’ exposure to computer application software and database development using Access, in conjunction with the traditional accounting courses, should provide the accounting student with a rounded solid computer-based accounting degree.

The current business environment requires all prospective employees to have good communication skills, both written and oral, and to be able to interact with co-workers and clients in a professional manner. Employers also expect workers to have strong computational skills, to be computer literate and to be able to think critically. All students completing a program at Stark State College will be introduced, provided practice in and be expected to master these basic competencies.

Get skilled in the most widely used software applications – including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access and QuickBooks – and their accounting functions. Not only will you get a foundation in accounting theory and other business areas, you’ll graduate with a highly developed computer competency.
