December 14, 2010 | Adam Sorensen | Leave a comment Stevens-Henager College recently announced the launch of its online accounting degree, which is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the field. College officials said that this online degree program prepares graduates to work toward professional certificates that could improve their employment prospects in the future. The curriculum will cover fundamentals such as payroll, computerized and tax accounting as well as classes in marketing, finance and database management. The program requires 36 months to complete. However, the curriculum can be finished within 30 months on the school’s FastFlex schedule,which incorporates hybrid learning. College officials say that interested candidates must participate in an online interview, while those seeking the traditional training will take part in an on-campus meeting. During the evaluation, applicants must demonstrate how they intend to pay for their tuition. However, the school will provide a financial plan that will help students identify the grants and loans for which they are eligible. According to a recent report by the Babson Survey Research Group and the Sloan Consortium, more than 4.6 million U.S. students were enrolled in web-based courses in 2008.
