Accounting is less about mathematics, and more about giving structure to unstructured situations by learning and speaking the language of business. Students learn to tell the story of what an organization looks like, what an organization has done, and what it might do in the future.

Every business needs accounting help, whether it is the largest retail company in the world, a small family-owned enterprise, an agency for the homeless, or a musical group touring the country. The accounting major provides an excellent foundation for a variety of careers.
