Accounting

A career in accounting appeals to students with wide-ranging interests and good communication skills. Ultimately, accounting is about information. Sound management of financial resources can capture not only how a person or organization is doing, but also where they are going. This information is crucial for decision-making in business, government and for non-profit organizations. Learn how to prepare financial and related information, and how to interpret what it means.
