As the language of business, accounting is a critical skill that forms the backbone of information systems essential for decision making. Accountants are key partners in businesses, not-for-profits, and governmental organizations. As long as businesses and organizations exist there will be a demand for accountants. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) nearly 1.4 million accountants work in the United States and that number is expected to grow by 10% between 2016 and 2026. Part of what drives this growth is the versatility of the profession. It is a field driven by data and analytics.
