University of Texas at Dallas Adds Quickbooks Bootcamp to Accounting Program

Would an accounting bootcamp teach students how to use Quickbooks?

Reported by EdSurge, accounting courses at the University of Texas at Dallas teach students classroom theory, and then practice applying that theory using real-life work scenarios via the popular accounting software, Quickbooks.

Rather than graduating students who understand advanced theory but don’t know how to use basic accounting software, UT Dallas is attempting to help students cross that technical bridge from the classroom to the workplace.

The takeaway? With all our degree programs, how can we help students bridge the technology gap their next job will require before they get there?
