Accounting Overview

Accounting is an important part of every business and industry around the world. Successful accountants possess interpersonal, communication and problem-solving skills. Accountants must also bring a broad perspective and special accounting knowledge to the job.

The field of accounting offers challenging and rewarding opportunities in public accounting, tax accounting, industry, government, and not-for-profit organizations. The courses and hands-on experiences we provide in the Scott College of Business will prepare you for any of these exciting careers.
