Accounting - Students will complete an accounting cycle for a proprietorship, a partnership, and a corporation. The complete accounting cycle includes transaction analysis; journalizing and posting entries; preparation and posting of adjusting entries; preparation of a balance sheet, income statement, and the appropriate owner-equity statement; and post-closing entries. In addition, students evaluate ethical issues related to accounting and study a variety of cases to determine acceptable, appropriate accounting procedures.

Money Matters - Students will investigate global economics with emphasis on the free enterprise system and its impact on consumers and businesses. Students apply critical-thinking skills to analyze financial options based on current and projected economic factors. Students will gain knowledge and skills necessary to set long-term financial goals based on those options. Students will determine methods of achieving long-term financial goals through investment, tax planning, asset allocation, risk management, retirement planning, and estate planning.

Principles of Business, Marketing & Finance - Students gain knowledge and skills in economies and private enterprise systems, the impact of global business, marketing of goods and services, advertising, and product pricing. Students analyze the sales process and financial management principles. This course allows students to reinforce, apply, and transfer academic knowledge and skills to a variety of interesting and relevant activities, problems and settings in business, marketing, and finance.

Principles of Information Technology - Through the study of Principles of Information Technology, students learn to make informed decisions and they will develop computer literacy skills to adapt to emerging technologies used in the global marketplace. Students implement personal and interpersonal skills to prepare for a rapidly evolving workplace environment. Students enhance reading, writing, computing, communication, and reasoning skills and apply them to the information technology environment.
