Exploring Accounting Advisory Careers: Translating Financial Information into Strategic Business Decisions
Tuesday, December 7 | 6 pm CT | Register Here
Accounting is the language of business, and Gies College of Business has been a leader in preparing accounting professionals for decades. The accounting job market continues to be strong and is not expected to slow down any time soon. With a Gies Accounting education, you will be ready for success in a profession that provides a wide variety of career paths.
Advisory accounting is one of those paths. Advances in technology have automated routine accounting tasks, changing the traditional work of an accountant. There has been a skill shift, with a greater emphasis on the analytical advisory role.
