The commitment to developing strong financial decision makers is what makes the University of Northern Iowa College of Business Administration the top university for accounting degree graduates. All business decisions impact and are impacted by "the numbers." The accounting degree program will teach students how to prepare and interpret financial information that will benefit the economic activity of any organization. Certified public accountants are the most widely recognized and highly trusted professionals in the business world. The benefits that come with being a CPA include increased trust, opportunity and financial reward - some of which are not standard with a general accounting degree. The Non-CPA track accounting majors can work in a number of positions in a variety of companies without CPA certification. As an accountant, students can easily work for big and small businesses, school districts and various nonprofit and government organizations.
