Accounting (Part-time studies)

School of Business Certificate

Program Overview

Practical training in accounting can be a tremendous asset, whether you want to broaden your career options, meet changing job requirements or start your own business. It helps to have a good head for numbers, but the real key to success in the field is attention to detail and accuracy.

You’ll receive practical training in:

  • Accounts receivable and accounts payable;
  • Accounting for partnerships, shareholder equity, pension plans;
  • Accounting software and information systems;
  • Bookkeeping;
  • Fundamentals of auditing, finance and taxation; and
  • Payroll

You’ll develop a solid foundation in basic accounting theory, but the focus is on practical application. At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, hands-on exercises and projects help you translate knowledge into skills.

If you completed both LAW 220 and STAT 120 prior to July 1, 2019, you will not need to
complete either ECON 100 or ECON 120 to complete the requirements for graduation.
This clause will be in effect for five (5) years (i.e., through the 2023/2024 academic year).
