FMGT 3720 - Advanced Computer Applications 1

Financial Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

This is a general module that introduces students to both Intuit’s QuickBooks and Sage 300 ERP accounting software packages for a Merchandising company. QuickBooks, like Sage 50 (formerly called Simply Accounting) is typically used by small business organizations while Sage 300 ERP is used by larger organizations. A significant difference between QuickBooks/Sage 50 and Sage 300 ERP is that Sage 300 ERP is a batch driven system, which many students will not have seen yet. In batch driven systems it is important for accounting students to understand when the General Ledger is updated and additionally how batches can be used to improve internal control.
