Accounting Concentration

A major in business administration with a concentration in accounting provides a doorway to many career opportunities both within and outside of accounting. The degree may lead one to become a certified public accountant or certified management accountant and will prepare one for employment in the manufacturing and service industries as well as for government service. A background in accounting is also an excellent foundation for graduate school in business or law.

Accounting, often called the language of business, provides essential information about the economic activities of an entity. It plays an important role in our economic and social system. The decisions made by individuals, businesses, governments and other entities determine the use of the nation's scarce resources. The goal of accounting is to record, report and interpret economic and financial data for use by decision makers.
