What is accounting?
Accounting consists of recording financial transactions for a business. The accounting process includes tracking, summarizing, and reporting accurate business profits.
Within accounting, students learn to prepare financial statements, report on business assets, liabilities, and operating expenses and explore the economic and managerial perspectives on the relationships between business activity, economic outcomes, and positive and negative evaluations of performance. The accounting concentration curriculum provides an excellent background to become a certified public accountant (CPA).
