As students assume roles of supervisors, managers and above in their future for profit and not for profit jobs, many of the metrics by which they will be judged and by which they will judge their associates are driven by the accounting function. A good understanding of the determining factors behind the numbers generating these metrics will allow a future manager to see beyond the numbers and make more informed business decisions. The Accounting minor is geared to provide this understanding as well as a good working knowledge of increasingly complex tax laws. Additionally, should a non-Accounting major decide to pursue a CPA at a later point in life, as many often do, a good solid foundation has been created to make this transition easier.
