Why study Accounting?

Accounting is often described as the “language of business.” Numbers as language? Well, not exactly. Accountants definitely need to be numbers savvy, but what they really do is provide information. As an accountant, you’ll gather and organize financial information, analyze that information, assess performance and efficiency, and make suggestions for change or improvement.

The field of accounting is where you can see exponential growth. With advancements in technology, continuing changes related to accounting rules and regulations, and rapid globalization, there is no shortage of new opportunities and challenges for accountants. And because understanding of the accounting “language” is so fundamental to business, a degree in Accounting is a great launch pad for any business career.


The Accounting program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee positions you for a career in public accounting (where you’ll provide tax, auditing, and consulting services to your company’s clients), corporate accounting (where you’ll work as part of a team that provides reliable financial data for management to make decisions), or non-profit or governmental accounting. The UWM Lubar School of Business is the leader in providing accounting graduates to international public accounting firms and major corporations headquartered in Wisconsin.
