Why Accounting?


I will be graduating with an Accounting degree. Accounting offers so many opportunities that are both challenging and exciting. An Accounting major can go into taxation, audit and many industry jobs. I have chosen the Audit path.


Why does the economy need auditors?

Companies produce goods and or services that people either need or want. The consumer wants or needs these goods or services for one reason or another. In order for these businesses to flourish, they need funding. Whether they get this money from debt, issuing stock or investors, they need reliable information about their business. Auditors provide assurance that this information ( Financial Statements)  is reliable. In turn, Auditors keep the economy alive by making sure these financial statements can be relied on.


Accounting is the language of business and in my opinion, the most valuable business degree to receive. This is why I chose to study Accounting.
