Accounting focuses on developing the ability to analyze and solve budgetary and financial problems. Accounting coursework covers:  the collection, recording, summarizing and interpretation of financial data; the uses of accounting data by management; the uses of accounting procedures in all phases of financial matters; and the uses of computers and other electronic means of handling accounting data. Although strong quantitative skills and attention to detail are important qualities for accountants, students need to acquire other skills as well.
