Associate's in Accounting

If you enjoy working with numbers and data, are detail-oriented, have good communication and organizational skills, and are comfortable using computers, accounting is a great career choice with expected steady growth in employment opportunities.
Graduates of this degree program learn a wide range of skills, including managing accounts receivable, accounts payable, and payroll. They also know how to prepare tax returns, prepare and analyze financial statements, and use computer applications proficiently.
The Associate's program in accounting offers the following area of emphasis:

Financial Accounting

Financial accounting is a substantial part of accounting that involves the collection, recording and extraction of financial information. The financial accounting emphasis includes classes such as payroll accounting and two intermediate accounting courses to prepare students to fulfill the needs of a financial accountant. Students will gain the skills to work in an accounting firm or in a small business.

Financial Investigation

Earning an Associate's degree in accounting - financial investigation, opens the door to an exciting career path in the high demand area of fraud detection and prevention, while providing a complete and solid core in accounting skills. Companies are concerned with preventing loss due to fraud and have realized the importance of having skilled and trained financial investigation professionals on staff.
Tax evasion, public corruption, health care fraud, telemarketing fraud and terrorist financing are just a few of the types of crimes that revolve around money. In these cases, a financial investigation often becomes the key to a conviction. Traditional law enforcement relies on investigative tools such as crime scene analysis, physical evidence, fingerprint identification or eyewitness accounts. The limitations of these techniques become obvious to those who are trying to prove wrongdoing in a sophisticated financial crime. With no proof, there is no conviction.

Associate's in Business Management

Open the door to many exciting business management careers. Our programs are structured to teach you the professional skills you need to become a successful manager. Rasmussen offers targeted programs that feature the strategies, financial principles, communication, administration and technology that put you at the forefront of business foundations.
Our business management programs provide a varying degree of study in classes such as accounting, management, office operations, sales and marketing.

Business Administration

Students interested in the business administration emphasis will receive a specialized education in the general topics of business. Rasmussen College students will take courses in accounting, payroll accounting, customer service and business ethics. These students will be prepared to work in careers such as retail management and office management.

Call Center Management

Call center managers perform a broad range of duties. They coordinate and direct support services to organizations as diverse as insurance companies, computer manufacturers and government offices. These supervisors are involved in the many services that allow organizations to operate efficiently, including telecommunications management and related customer service areas.


If you want to succeed as a small business owner, it's a good idea to get an education that will benefit you the most. The business field can be challenging, but if you stick with it and continue to change with the market, you will have a better chance to succeed. The Business Management Associate's degree with a Specialization in Entrepreneurship will teach you many of the skills you need to successfully run your own business. Entrepreneurs are self-motivated people, who are willing to take a high level of personal, professional and financial risk. With this risk, there is also a chance for great reward. Entrepreneurs are real go-getters and the type of person that doesn't take no for an answer.
