Accountants prepare, analyze and verify financial reports and monitor information systems that furnish this information to management. Business executives, bankers, government leaders and investors all rely on financial statements and other reports prepared by accountants that summarize and interpret financial transactions that occur in every business.

Students who complete the accounting program can qualify to sit for the CPA exam in Ohio after completing a few additional courses and a qualifying exam as determined by the Ohio Board of Accountancy.
