TaxMama Reviews Accounting Degree Courses at Rasmussen College

**This post features famous business author and blogger Eva Rosenberg.

As a tax professional, bookkeeping is one thing I’ve always loved about the profession. Whenever I balance a set of books, I feel a sense of closure. I feel like I am in control. I loved the concept of having things balance – and learning all the tricks to quickly identify errors. I learned bookkeeping on the job even before taking accounting classes.

You have the opportunity to learn from some terrific instructors using tools we never had when I was in college. At Rasmussen College, you have passionate accounting instructors, like Jared Eutsler, CPA, CFE, CMA, CFM, who teaches courses online through the School of Business.  He has a extensive background in both the business world and public accounting, which makes him able to counsel students towards a successful career path in accounting.

Recently, Jared and I discussed the educational tools you have at your disposal to help you in real life – when you’re working, and helping set up new businesses.

Jared describes three lower division classes that give you a solid foundation to handle a new company’s basic accounting function:

  • Financial Accounting I: In this course you will learn the basics of Accounting.  You will learn the differences between debits and credits and how to close the books.  One of the unique features of this class is that by the end you will be able to do all of the books for small business which you will demonstrate in a comprehensive problem.
  • Computer Focus Principles: In this course, you’ll learn computerized accounting systems including QuickBooks® and Microsoft ™ Excel.
  • Excel: The Microsoft™ Excel course will teach you some of the more advanced spreadsheet techniques including pivot tables and advanced formulas. A backbone for accounting and business planning, Excel skill mastery is key to success in the accounting field.
