OUR BUSINESS & OFFICE MANAGEMENT WITH ACCOUNTING PROGRAM
The Business & Office Management with Accounting Program is designed to provide students multiple junior-level employment options in the fields of business, accounting, or bookkeeping. Our students obtain a wide background in business administration procedures, accounting concepts, and bookkeeping procedures. At the end of the program, our students take a certification test with the National Association of Certified Bookkeepers, included with tuition. Graduates from this program usually work in offices of small to big size organizations (public or private) in government, retail, manufacturing or service industries.
Once a student completes training, our full time Career Services staff offers job placement assistance. Our staff also offers students guidance, support and employment assistance even after completion of the program. Vantage graduates will complete school knowing that they have the skills to obtain a job, perform well, and advance in the career that they have chosen to become a valued member of the workforce. Vantage College also provides services such as flexible tutoring schedules, class-related field trips, guest speakers, and interview preparation.
