The associate in accounting degree program is designed to prepare students for immediate entry into the accounting field.
It combines a concentration in accounting and computer science with business, economics, and general education requirements. This program is especially appropriate for positions in businesses requiring a small but knowledgeable accounting staff.
All of the courses apply to the four-year accounting major at Trine, so this degree also serves as an excellent beginning for students who subsequently plan to seek the Bachelor of Business Administration degree with an accounting major.
