Accounting blends business expertise and knowledge with communication skills to improve organizational decision-making.

Accountants play a key role in the continued growth of a prosperous society. They’re far more than “bean counters” or “score keepers” and often hold positions of trust within organizations. Accounting information is how businesses communicate, attract resources, and decide how to organize and differentiate in an ever-changing world.
