Many students or working professionals choose to pursue an associate degree to obtain promotions, find skilled employment or fulfill education requirements for higher degrees. Often, these take between one and two years to complete.

What is an associate degree in accounting and finance? This degree enables students to professionally practice financial accounting, management accounting, taxation or auditing. Most course curriculums also require students to take classes in business law and economics as a greater understanding of the economy as a whole will often greatly increase their accounting and finance acumen. This degree shouldn’t be confused with a Bachelor of Business Administration, which is a general business degree with a focus in finance and accounting.

This degree program is typically a must-have for any student who wants to become an accountant. While some institutions require a student to pursue their master’s degree in accountancy, some students can go directly from their associate degree on to obtaining their status as a professional accountant. 

There isn’t a clear cut cost for attaining an associate degree. If a local university nearby offers a program in accounting and finance, a student may be eligible for local tuition rates.

Most students who receive their associate degree in accounting and finance go on to pursue their status as a professional accountant or to earn their CPA (Certified Public Accountant). Many institutions will require a master’s degree in accountancy before a person works professionally. If a graduate is able to start working after an undergraduate program, he or she often finds employment as an articled clerk at an accounting firm. Other job titles include financial advisor, bookkeeper, broker and account manager.

International students or students not near an accredited institution may still pursue their associate degree in accounting and finance via many different online programs from any corner of the world. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
