Starting next September, the Multicultural Education Center will be offering the Accounting and Management Technology to a group of international students. This program puts particular emphasis on applied business methods and computerized applications and help to develop the skills to process and analyze financial and business information effectively. By doing this program the students will acquire the tools and knowledge to deal with the challenges of business and to succeed in today’s competitive and dynamic environment.
The ACS in Accounting and Management Technology is designed to prepare students to work as an accounting and management technician. Armed with the knowledge of entry-level business professionals, graduates are trained to be versatile business technicians. They have a comprehensive understanding of business-specific operations, are capable of overseeing financial transactions and preparing financial statements. They work in companies of various sizes. In small companies, they are often responsible for a variety of tasks. In large or medium-sized companies or organizations, their work is more specialized.
The ACS in International Trade is designed to prepare students to work as an international trade technician. This technician oversees the management of exports or imports of goods and services – from the potential market research to the establishment of implementation policies after the transaction is concluded. His or her main tasks are: carrying out market studies; developing market entry strategies, determining prices, modes of payment and financing; negotiating with foreign entities; planning the logistics of service delivery; supervising operations and ensuring the application of follow-up policies assuring satisfaction and continuing good relations between all stakeholders.
The ACS Educational Practice in Early Childhood (outside Quebec) was developed specifically for the Chinese student of Early Childhood Education. It aims to share our Canadian educational approach to young children, at least the part that is transferable to an entirely different social and cultural context. The program is for students already enrolled in an Early Childhood Education program in a partner institution of Cégep Marie-Victorin in China or elsewhere. The program does not aim to give a complete initial training since that is provided by the partner institution and is based on the rules and standards in force in the country of origin. Rather, it is a program that aims to train foreign educators in the process of educational practice with children in the age group attending a kindergarten or other preschool daycare.
