Muskingum College offers new professional options

Muskingum College will make available three new professional development options designed for people interested in the field of accounting starting immediately. Built on one of the well-established strengths of the college, the new accounting certificate program will provide students a choice of progressively more advanced options in accounting including a college certificate in basic accounting, a college certificate in office management accounting, and a college certificate in public accounting preparatory to the CPA examination.

"The Muskingum Economics, Accounting and Business faculty plans to make these options available to both current and prospective accounting professionals in our region starting this spring,” stated Economics, Accounting and Business Department Chair, Gary Golden. “These college certificate options will appeal to a broad spectrum of candidates ranging from students with little or no college experience, who may want to explore higher education in a compact yet meaningful program, to college graduates interested in advancing already established careers.”

Muskingum promises to make the program user-friendly. Rolling admissions will allow most students to begin their program at the beginning of any term during the 12-month calendar followed by the college. Students will be able to choose between classes offered on the traditional daytime schedule or on the evening schedule when classes meet once a week. The college also plans to make courses which are part of the certificate options available in New Concord and at sites in Coshocton, Zanesville and Cambridge.
