Course Brief

t is well recognized that "few subjects in a degree course in Business Administration are approached by students with a greater sense of awe than accounting". Reasons profess for this are many, some include:
  • Unlike many other business disciplines, such as marketing, economics, and organizational behaviour, which are viewed as intuitive, accounting is non-intuitive requiring the mastery of rules from the onset.
  • Accounting is seen to deal exclusively with numbers; many people prefer to deal with words and ideas.
  • As a result of its concentration on numbers, accounting is considered to be concerned with precision and accuracy, both of which require highly developed mathematical mind.
These are just a few reasons why the discipline of accounting tends to intimidate non-finance persons. This course is designed to remove the "awe factor" shared by prospective non-finance higher education students or anyone who need to use accounting numbers in their work by introducing the concepts in a manner where no prior knowledge of accounting is assumed. Complete this course and receive 50% discount on the Administrative fee when signing up for the Accounting module!
