The Language of Business

The Accounting major trains students to analyze the operations of a business as well as to prepare and analyze financial reports that furnish current information for businesses, government agencies, and other organizations.

What is Accounting?

Accounting StudentAccountants are the financial gatekeepers of the world. They prepare and analyze financial reports that furnish current information for businesses, government agencies, and other organizations. The accounting profession offers many employment opportunities in broad areas such as auditing, financial, tax and management accounting. The field of accounting offers stimulating and challenging work that is constantly evolving. Because accounting professionals spend considerable time analyzing the operations of a business, accounting is often referred to as the “language of business.”
