B.S.B.A. in Accounting

An accountant’s main responsibilities include auditing, tax services, and management consulting. Accountants who work in corporations make sure the finances and operations of their particular companies are in order, and their practices comply with company policies and government regulations. Government agencies also hire many accountants to perform similar duties as their counterparts employed in public accounting firms and private corporations; however, government agencies also hire forensic accountants, who use their accounting skills to investigate potential theft and fraud. Some accountants, after passing the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam, open their own practices and provide their services to smaller companies and their communities.
