Why study Accountancy?
Accountants provide the information necessary to determine and evaluate the long term and short term financial stability of companies, organization or individuals. Accountants track expenses, provide detailed insight about the expenses and future paths, as well as prepare, analyze and verify financial documents. They look for ways to be more financially efficient, keep public records and make sure taxes are paid properly.
Students can apply to this minor from February 1–28 (for the following fall semester) and September 1–30 (for the following spring semester).
