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.
Accounting is a versatile degree. Students who graduate with a major in accounting may find jobs in many areas of business including: sales, production management, client management, product development, procurement, general management, banking and financial planning.
