Life is like accounting, everything must be balanced.
I am a fourth year BBA student with a concentration in accounting. I have worked an 8-month co-op at PwC as an Assurance Associate with a focus on financial services and capital markets. While working in audit, I tested line items on the balance sheet and income statement such as cash, retained earnings and expenses; my personal favourite is salaries expense. Some things I enjoy doing include travelling, hiking and canoeing.
The accounting courses provided by Prism build both practical and technical skills for many accounting roles. Students should take these courses to get a head start on their co-op positions and build exposure on how financial statements are analyzed. Some topics covered include the fundamental audit assertions, key tools used in quickbooks and how to develop working papers. The accounting modules will help you gain a competitive edge when trying to break into the accounting industry.
