Accounting is called "the first language" of business for good reason: the fate of many products and marketing campaigns hinges on the financial officer's final analysis. For this reason, successful accounting professionals often assume leadership roles within their companies. Whether you are interested in working within an existing organization or in starting your own business, understanding financial matters is vital to your success.
The Accounting Option provides students with opportunities in a variety of fields, including internal audit, external audit, tax preparation and planning, and consulting. Demand for accountants has been consistently strong.
