The purpose of this course is to give the student tools, information, and strategies to equip them in a way that will give them the best chance of success when starting a business. We will discuss topics such as risk, economics, the global market, ethics, legal considerations, organization, human resources, and marketing. As a student reads, completes practices and assignments, discusses with others, and takes assessments, he or she will gain a practical understanding of the components of a small business and the steps that one takes to create and establish that business, from the idea, to the business plan, to the strategies for helping that business to succeed and grow.
This course will provide an introduction to the concepts and uses of accounting in a business environment. The primary areas of study in this course include analysis of business transactions, recording procedures and the use of ledgers and journals, accounting for sales and purchases, managing cash, payroll, accruals and deferrals, and preparation and analysis of basic financial statements. After completing this course, students will have solid understanding of business and financial accounting and its role in bookkeeping administration.
In this course, you will learn how to use QuickBooks Online plus by completing two monthly accounting cycles. In the first lessons, accounting for selling service items will be covered. In later lessons, both service items and inventory items that are sold will be covered. Preparing payroll and creating a new company will also be included. Prior to taking this course, you should be familiar with the accounting cycle and how it is related to a business. While no prior knowledge of QuickBooks Online is required, it will be beneficial to have an understanding of accounting principles.
The majority of this course will be conducted through drill exercises and related practice activities and quizzes based on the knowledge you have gained through completing each chapter. Be prepared for a thorough, and extensive hands-on experience throughout the journey of completing this QuickBooks course.
