Accounting is a program that combines business education with finance and auditing. It's a systematic process that requires excellent organizational and mathematical skills, but written and oral communication skills are also extremely important since you must be able to explain in-depth financial planning to the consumer. The instruction includes accounting principles and theory, planning and consulting, and business information systems. But there are also lessons in accounting research methods, tax accounting and budget control. The course load's mixture of business and finance prepares the students for a professional accountant status in business or government or in business fields such as management consulting and financial management.Not only do accountants summarize and record business and financial transactions, but they also must understand the legal aspects of accounting for public, for-profit and nonprofit organizations. The four basic types of accounting professionals are management, government, internal and public accountants. Accounting students learn money management and the ins and outs of business, and the sneak peek they get into its inner workings provides valuable knowledge and greater understanding they'll later apply in the work field. Job titles include, but are not limited to, accountant, financial analyst, tax adviser and financial planner.
