Southwestern College Professional Studies is now offering a graduate certificate in Executive Accounting.
The Graduate Certificate in Executive Accounting provides an opportunity for graduate learners to add an area of emphasis to their non-accounting business degree. Learners pursuing the Master of Accountancy graduate degree could also earn the certificate to demonstrate a progression of success in their program.
“The addition of this certificate allows us to better meet the needs of our learners in our graduate business programs, making them more knowledgeable and marketable as business leaders,” said Pamela Monaco, vice president for Southwestern College Professional Studies.
The courses emphasize awareness of multiple types of organizations that rely on ethical accounting practices along with planning and decision-making based on various financial and non-financial transactions. Learners examine the integration of accounting reporting systems into business processes and develop skills to evaluate computerized accounting methods and controls.
The five courses composing the Executive Accounting Certificate can be completed in eight months or fewer in convenient six-week classes. Individuals completing the Executive Accounting Certificate at Southwestern College may apply all of these 15 credit hours earned toward a Master of Accountancy degree or a portion of the credit hours towards a Master of Business Administration or a Master of Science in Management.
