The Kansas Society of CPAs have joined with Sterling College Department of Business Administration in a beginning QuickBooks class, offering a free, one-year subscription to the students enrolled. The KSCPA is funding the software that will be put on the College network for students in the class to access from any campus computer.
“Technology and accounting go hand in hand. And as the future of this technology continues to move toward automation, the need for young professionals to have solid knowledge in the latest accounting software applications is a necessity. The KSCPA is dedicated to fostering and supporting our next generation of Kansas CPAs. We understand our accounting students need resources – such as scholarships, mentorship and engagement in the profession – to reach their full potential,” said Mary R. MacBain, president and CEO of KSCPA.
The class will be taught by Assistant Professor of Business Tim Thorpe, who chose QuickBooks due to its popularity with small businesses.
“The opportunity for students to learn about one of the major accounting software programs is something the department is excited to offer. It is very generous of the Kansas Society of CPAs to fund the software, allowing our students to only pay for a textbook. This will make the class more accessible to several students,” said Thorpe.
