The Accounting Major provides both technical accounting and financial skills and the broad functional business background necessary to succeed in this challenging career field. New financial instruments and accounting pronouncements are being developed constantly. Tax laws are ever changing. While Accounting expertise is critical, managers in the field must make recommendations and decisions with the ‘big picture’ in mind and communicate information in an open and understandable way to both external and internal users.
