Accounting is an information system that represents the economic resources and responsibilities of business or non-business enterprises. Monitored over time, it is used as a decision-making tool for the allocation of resources and evaluation of responsibilities.

Accounting information impacts major economic decisions that have national and even global impact.

Upon graduation, Accounting majors may write the Uniform Certified Public Accounting Examination, the Certified Internal Auditor Examination, the Certified Management Accountant Examination, and/or the Certified Fraud Examination.
