Bachelor of Business

Accounting is an integral part of the management process in any business, public enterprise or not-for-profit entities. It acts as an evaluation and control aid when looking at the effectiveness and efficiency of the operations of an enterprise as well as employee performance. It provides information to assist users in making decisions for a variety of purposes, including the acquisition or sale of shares, lending of money, and provision of goods on credit.

You’ll also learn to interpret accounting and auditing standards as you gain new skills in financial statement analysis, forecasting and budgeting, negotiation, ethical decision-making and problem-solving.
