The Bachelor of Science in Accounting Technology (BSAct) program of CKS College is a four-year course designed to produce globally competitive accounting technicians. With the growth of the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry, there is an increased demand for record keepers or accounting technicians who can more effectively and efficiently undertake the following finance and accounting functions: accounting and bookkeeping, account maintenance, accounts receivable management, financial analysis and auditing, management consulting, inventory control and purchasing, expense and revenue reporting, financial reporting, tax reporting and other finance-related services such as financial leasing, credit card administration, factoring and stock brokering, as well as logistics management and cargo shipment management.
BSAct is a non-board program. However, BSAct graduates can secure National Competency II (NCII) certification via the Technical Educational Skills and Development Authority (TESDA).
Additionally, the BSAct program prepares students for the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) licensure examinations.
As per CHED (Commission on Higher Education) Memorandum Order No. 50 Series of 2008,
Accounting technicians are skilled support staff working in accounting and finance. They generally maintain systematic records of business transactions, verify and record them, use computers to calculate, prepare and process financial records. Students who satisfatorily complete the program can later on apply for a BSA degree. (Article 1, Sections 4 and 5)
The objectives of the BSAct program are to equip students with specific skills for entry into the BPO industry and accounting profession and to prepare students for eventual entry into the regular degree program of the Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA). (Article III, Section 12)
