    A more approachable course load means there’s a better opportunity for you to pass the class. More extra credit opportunities make it easier to earn the grade you want.
  2. Great faculty with some new faces
    Wayne State grad Olta Sota (M.B.A. ’19 and B.B.A. ’13) and Wayne State Physicians Group CFO Diana Goode join Dr. Deb Jones, Victoria Swiencicki and Stacy Kramp to bring fresh faces to the class.
  3. Internship opportunities
    If you ace the class, the accounting department chair will personally help you find an internship. CPA firms and corporations are always looking for the next generation of talented people to hire, and ACC 3010 is an important step in the right direction.
  4. Learn Microsoft Excel as a business tool
    Even if you have a basic understanding of Excel, this course will unlock a deeper skillset so you’ll be better prepared to fully utilize Excel as a tool in the business world. This specialized knowledge is what’ll set you apart from everyone else with only basic familiarity.
  5. Learn accounting!
