Accountants oversee the accurate and efficient operation of business by assessing financial statements, preparing tax returns, managing payroll and much more. Since accountants are central to almost all organizational operations, they are often consulted to make business decisions and to find ways to reduce costs, enhance revenues and improve profits. Getting your start in accounting can lead to a successful business career.

Sullivan’s streamlined Administrative Accounting Specialist Diploma quickly and efficiently prepares graduates to launch an accounting career.


Sullivan’s Administrative Accounting Specialist Diploma prepares graduates for entry-level positions as junior accountants or accounting technicians professionals.

  • Sullivan’s accounting programs follow a stair-step progression that makes it easy for you to move forward with your education at your own pace. Begin with the diploma to gain an entry-level accounting position, progress to the associate degree to acquire additional skills and then go for the bachelor’s degree to prepare for management roles. An MBA with an accounting concentration can then take you even farther, equipping you for senior-level management positions and additional certifications.
