The two Business Administration programs at Dawson College follow the same course of study in the first year to give you a solid business foundation in the fundamentals of accounting and marketing.
Accounting and Management Technology is a three-year career program that places particular emphasis on applied business methods and computerized applications. This approach will help you to think critically, to develop skills in analysis and to use computers to process and analyze financial and business information effectively.
