Accounting From A Higher Perspective

You know accounting is more than numbers. It's the backbone of operations. You think critically, and your actions are critical to success. You identify solutions, not problems. You value leadership, and relish learning from business leaders. You enjoy variety, and appreciate the multiple career paths and employers available to you.

The practice of accounting is among the greatest operational assets of business. Accounting isn't just about money; it also involves data analysis, strategic thinking and forecasting. Today's accounting major learns that ethical practice is integral to a company's reputation management. Whether it's in big business or small business, non-profit or government, accounting is a core operation, and well-trained students are sought after.
