WHY STUDY GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT?
Federal and state government agencies, as well as government contractors, are experiencing an increasing need for skilled professionals who are able to demonstrate their competency in governmental accounting, auditing, financial reporting, internal controls, and budgeting.
“We worked very closely with federal government audit professionals to design the curriculum and to meet the growing needs of agencies in the area.”
