Accounting is the language of business. Accountants provide the information necessary for evaluating past performance, present operations, and planned future activities for every type of organization. A career in professional accounting is challenging and provides an opportunity for service to individuals, businesses, government, and the entire community.
A degree in accounting prepares you for employment in industry, small business, banking, large operations, non-for-profit organizations, and governmental agencies of all types at the local, state, and national levels. Public accounting firms provide auditing, consulting, and tax services to all types of individuals and organizations. An accounting career enables a person to grow professionally and to advance to responsible positions while exercising considerable independence of thought and judgment.
