Accounting focuses on the development, interpretation and communication of financial and operational information for effective decision-making. Because entities compete for economic resources, accounting is essential to managers for planning and controlling activities.
Accountants measure the results of economic activities and report or attest to such activity to investors, management, regulators and other stakeholders. Accounting courses and related programs at UCR School of Business are designed to prepare students for thriving careers in areas such as audit and assurance, management accounting, taxation, financial accounting and management consulting.
The curriculum in the undergraduate and graduate accounting programs provides many of the foundational requirements for professional certification as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA) or Certified Internal Auditor (CIA).
