Accounting, “the Language of Business,” is the core of any business enterprise. Accountants are responsible for communicating and interpreting financial information as a basis for strategic decision-making.
Accounting examines the past financial history of an enterprise, develops plans for the future and ensures integrity of operations. Areas of advanced study prepare students to function as executives responsible for business decision-making in profit and not-for-profit enterprises. They include:
- Cost Management
- Information Systems
- Multinational Operations
Types of Accounting Jobs
Because almost all organizations need accounting information, positions are available in many different areas, ranging from manufacturing firms to service industries to hospitals and other not-for profits and all levels of governmental operations.
Graduates can work as:
- Certified Public Accountants (CPAs)
- internal auditors
- financial planners
- budget specialists
- merger and acquisition consultants
- tax planners.
