Accounting is the collection, measurement and communication of financial information that is used for planning, reporting and decision making and is often referred to as the language of business. Understanding this language means accountants hold the privileged position of being key contributors to a business’ success. Armed with such skills, accountants can apply their knowledge in any number of dynamic industries.
