Accounting is the language of business that allows different entities to communicate effectively with each other. The accounting profession provides this vital service to management and owners of business firms, investors, creditors, labor unions, government agencies, and, most importantly, to the general public. The curriculum of the accounting major is designed to provide individuals with communication, critical thinking, and analytical skills, as well as the technical proficiency to become professional accountants.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and other accounting organizations continually emphasize the value of a broad approach to education. The liberal arts core and business courses that are required of all accounting majors address this need and help individuals acquire the necessary skills that will contribute to a productive life and satisfying career. Accounting courses also integrate an extensive use of computers and standard business software into instruction and student assignments.
