Accounting

Accounting 11 

(MAC- -11)

Students Will:

  • Create a personal budget;
  • Construct their own tax return; and
  • Perform bookkeeping for a sole proprietorship or partnership.

Accounting is the backbone of business programs at all universities and colleges.  Learning it now is easy and will benefit you later, especially if you pursue a commerce degree.

In this introductory course, students will learn how to record business transactions and prepare financial statements.  Students also gain computer experience by working with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and Simply Accounting software.

Simulations add reality and interest to the course.  Students especially enjoy playing the game of Monopoly, which is fun yet reinforces many accounting skills and concepts.

Financial Accounting 12 

(MFA- -12)

Students Will:

  • Create a personal budget;
  • Construct their own tax return; and
  • Perform bookkeeping for a sole proprietorship or partnership.

Financial Accounting 12 is intended for students who wish to pursue post-secondary studies in Commerce along with aspiring entrepreneurs.  Most of the Financial Accounting content is similar to a university course, so taking it now will really help students later – a fact confirmed by many former Hamber students.  We even use a post-secondary level textbook similar to those used at UBC and SFU; but we proceed at a slower, more reasonable pace.

Computer applications include work with Simply Accounting and Microsoft Excel.  Students will also participate in a Junior Achievement’s Investment Strategies Program.
