  • The Accounting Major is a rigorous program that prepares students to become an integral part of an organization's financial management team or enter public practice. Governments, non-profits, major corporations, small businesses, and high-worth individuals all need accountants to manage their financial affairs.
  • The two main focusses of accounting are public and management accounting. Public accountants are outside consultants that provide audit, tax, and business advisory services to their clients. Management accountants are employees of organizations working in areas such as financial reporting, performance measurement, financial planning, capital budgeting, cash management, working capital management, short and long-term financing, and risk management. Most accountants aspire to someday to become a partner at their public accounting firm or their organization’s controller, treasury, or chief financial officer (CFO).
