Accounting is a systematic way of analyzing and describing the activities of a business or other economic entity primarily in monetary terms. Its purpose is to provide useful information to managers, owners, investors, creditors, regulatory agencies, and others concerned about such information. Accounting involves analyzing and recording transactions and other events, combining recorded data in useful ways, and reporting results to those concerned. It also involves the art of analyzing and interpreting financial statements and other information provided by the accounting process.

Graduates will be prepared to function effectively in a competitive, professional environment where they must be adept with computers, software, and the people who create and maintain that software.
