MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHERE IT COUNTS, WITH A FORMIDABLE GRASP ON THE NUMBERS – AND A WIDE-ANGLE VIEW.
Accountants are key to the financial health of a business. As a professional preforming audits or analyzing financial statements, the career path can lead you to employment with an accounting firm, internally in a large company, or self-employment with an individual practice. Accountants use eagle-eyed attention to detail and sweeping understanding of the big financial picture to help make better business decisions by interpreting, classifying, analyzing, reporting and summarizing data.
As an accounting student at Oglethorpe, you’ll learn how to…
- Understand the major principles underlying economic activity
- Gather, analyze, and interpret financial information
- Communicate effectively with numbers and data
And that’s not all: Oglethorpe’s emphasis on the liberal arts (conveyed through the Core) means every student learns to be a better writer and a better thinker, with a deeper understanding of the world around them.
With a rock-solid foundation in the liberal arts – and a robust portfolio of high-value skills – you’ll be prepared for a great career in accounting, whether your aspirations lie in the public, private, or not-for-profit sectors. You can pursue a related role in business, management, or financial services… or increase your earning power by heading back to the classroom for a master’s degree, an MBA, or a Ph.D.
