Let’s be honest, accounting has a negative stigma attached to it. Why? Because mainstream accounting education teaches students how to be nothing more than bean counters. Boring! We take a different approach; a better approach. In a nutshell, we teach students how to become business decision makers. Our goal is to give entrepreneurs the necessary tools so they can unleash their ideas and be successful in the open business market. Accounting is the language of business and a entrepreneur with a solid understanding of the fundamental principles of accounting can run a business and solve problems better than competitors who fail to learn these crucial concepts.
