Business Technology & Accounting

Prepare yourself for a successful career by earning an Associate of Applied Science Degree in just 18 months in Perry Tech’s Business Technology & Accounting program.

The program provides a strong foundation, from basic office and computer skills to payroll, accounts payable/receivable, and business law. The program also equips you with the soft skills that employers value in their employees – customer service, etiquette, and business ethics. You’ll have a chance to put what you’ve learned to work in an externship or capstone project.

Gone are the days when duties were limited to answering phones and typing letters – today’s administrative assistants must have the skills needed to assume new tasks and accept duties once reserved for managerial and professional staff. Potential positions include: administrative assistant, payroll clerk, accounts receivable/payable positions, bookkeeper, and much more. With the right set of skills, an entry-level position can be the first step in a new and promising career.
