Accounting

Accounting Major
Accounting is the process of identifying, recording and analyzing information necessary to evaluate the past, present and future economic activities of organizations. Accounting is often said to be the language of business. Accountants apply their skills in areas such as auditing, taxation, financial analysis, information systems, management and policy. These services are provided to large and small businesses, not-for-profit entities, and governmental units.
