Overview

Accounting is the language of business. An accountant helps an organization to understand its financial standing and advises the organization on how to fulfill its financial goals. Accountants know the rules that govern business, and they communicate complex issues to people within an organization. They design and implement computer software that runs businesses and train others to use these programs effectively. Accountants are essential to the success of an organization.
