Learn the language of money! Accountants understand how to collect, organize, analyze and report on the operations of various businesses. They also know how to evaluate the success of businesses in various industries. This is an incredibly valuable skill. Businesses are willing to pay big money for people who possess it, because it makes for good business decisions. Accounting 11 is the first course in financial literacy. Students learn how to analyze business transactions, interpret revenues and expenses, monitor changes in financial position, and prepare basic financial records (General Journals, General Ledgers, Trial Balances, Income Statements, and Balance Sheets). This course mirrors post-secondary courses in introductory financial accounting and is very valuable for students wishing to pursue Business studies at the college or university level. This course is a pre-requisite for Financial Accounting 12.
