The goal is that graduates with this major will have the training to be employable in a hospital or health care facility accounting and/or finance department. In addition, the accounting and finance department at Stark State College has numerous articulation agreements with two and four-year institutions. This will enable the graduate to transfer credits to pursue a baccalaureate degree in accounting, finance, or management. With additional coursework at Stark State or as part of their baccalaureate program, the graduate would also be eligible to pursue professional certifications, such as the CPA or CMA.

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.

If working in both health care and finance/accounting appeals to you, this is your major. You’ll concentrate on essential accounting courses but also add knowledge about medical terminology, the basics of health care delivery systems, the complex world of reimbursements and insurance and the legal aspects of the medical profession.
