Accounting is recognized as the "language of business" and accountants as lifelines of the business world. The Department of Accounting focuses specifically on the preparation of accounting majors for a professional career in accounting - not only in the more traditional fields of auditing, income tax, managerial accounting and not-for-profit accounting but also in newly emerging specialized fields such as fraud examination and systems analysis. A degree in accounting opens the doors to a wide variety of career opportunities that are in high demand in today’s environment many of which are described in the Department’s brochure “A Brief Guide to Career Opportunities in Accounting.” Accounting majors are recruited by regional and international accounting firms, corporations, banking and financial institutions, and the Internal Revenue Service, among others.
