The purpose of Advanced Accounting is to expand on topics learned in Accounting I, while adding new topics about management accounting, cost accounting, not-for-profit accounting, and financial analysis. The study of a second year of accounting assists students in qualifying for jobs and careers at higher levels than one year of study would allow. It is also excellent preparation for college business and accounting courses and business majors. Automated accounting will be used in this course. Software provided with the textbook will be used, and spreadsheet software will be used to make financial reporting and analysis more efficient.
This is an introductory course in accounting fundamentals and procedures and includes capturing and analyzing business data and financial preparation. This is a college level, fast-paced, rigorous course that covers the material covered in the year long UHS Accounting in one semester.
