Accounting is referred to as "the language of business." It is the vehicle by which business activities are translated into meaningful financial results. 

As such, a solid understanding of accounting is vital for business leaders and intrinsic to the success of any company. That, in turn, makes an accounting degree and the skills that come with it highly desirable in the global marketplace.

The professors in the accounting program at Saint Michael's are all Certified Public Accountants and have all spent a significant amount of time working in public accounting. They draw on this experience to ensure their students a clear understanding of accounting systems and their importance in leading organizations.
