“Accounting is the language of business.” Business is the combination of transactions and exchanges to which there are values attached which are recorded and described in the accounting processes. While many think of accounting as merely a numerical recording of these transactions, the management functions are strategically involved.
As students pursue their academic accounting program, they have opportunities to interact with professionals from the community and consider the various options for an accounting career. Integrating this with internships allows the student to learn and practice accounting in a professional firm and often result in a career opportunity. The need for Accounting students is one of the greatest in the business world today.
