Accounting is the means by which organizations communicate financial information. As a result, accounting is often called the “language of business.”  Students completing an accounting major have a variety of career options from which to choose.

Studying accounting includes learning about financial accounting—the reporting of an organization’s financial information—and managerial accounting—the use of that data to measure the entity’s performance and inform decisions about its future. An accounting major learns how organizations’ financial records are prepared and maintained. Accounting includes the study of taxation, auditing, and financial reporting, accounting systems, and financial decision-making.
