Accounting is the glue that keeps the business world together. It keeps track of a company’s money. It’s used to determine a company’s value. It allows executives to identify and analyze growth opportunities. Without accounting there would be no commerce!
Accounting is the theory and system of setting up, keeping, and auditing a company’s books. It is the art of determining, tracking, and analyzing a company’s financial position through its sales, expenses, and purchases. The financial position is critical business information for the firm’s executives, their lenders, investors, and, of course, tax authorities.
The beauty of an education in accounting is that accounting knowledge and skills can be applied to any job industry; after all, every business needs accounting. Plus, with the struggling economy and the job market in decline, accounting has never been more important to individual companies, society, and the entire economy.
