Accountants and auditors prepare and examine financial records, identify potential areas of opportunity and risk, and provide solutions for businesses and individuals. They ensure that financial records are accurate, that financial and data risks are evaluated, and that taxes are paid properly. They also assess financial operations and work to help ensure that organizations run efficiently. Many accountants and auditors specialize, depending on their employer. Some work for organizations that specialize in assurance services (improving the quality or context of information for decision-makers) or risk management (determining the probability of a misstatement on financial documents). Other organizations specialize in specific industries, such as finance, insurance, or healthcare.

“The Five Star Education Foundation did a project with my business class. We were prompted to publish a large-scale printed piece and were responsible for finding the vendor for this project. We had to determine quotes for paper type, printing, binding, postage, and more. I thought this would be an easy project, but I quickly learned there are a lot of moving pieces for a simple product launch. This project inspired me to seek my business degree at CSU with an emphasis on product development!”
