Accounting is not only one of most solid careers in terms of employability and stability, but also in terms of consistent growth. Selecting any program of study is not easy with the constantly changing professional environment, but having an accounting degree from Beal College lets you know what you learn isn't going to change when you enter the workforce.
What to Expect
You may already have an idea about what you want to do for a career, or maybe you're not so sure. Either way, accounting is the one degree that gives you the education to succeed at just about anything in the business world. Accounting opens doors in every kind of business coast to coast. It can give you the foundation you need to go on and become a CPA. You can pursue a career in finance or corporate management, work in government, or even become an entrepreneur. In fact, no matter what you decide to do, having an accounting background can open doors wide. The varied job opportunities opened to accountants may be summarized into three major categories: public accounting, private accounting, and government & non-profit accounting.
The widespread use of computers also has enabled bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks to take on additional responsibilities, such as payroll, billing, purchasing (buying), and keeping track of overdue bills. Many of these functions require accountants to communicate with clients.
