Accountants help businesses pursue organizational goals by identifying, measuring, analyzing, interpreting, and communicating financial information to managers so that good financial decisions can be made. These decisions might involve deciding where to build a new production facility, how to price a new product, or whether to buy or lease a piece of production equipment. Rather than work for a public accounting firm and serve many client businesses, the typical management account is employed by one business where he or she becomes a key advisor to important decision-making in the firm. The Accounting Specialization provides the essential coursework to prepare graduates to excel as advisors to all types of businesses.
