Accounting is an ever-evolving field with growing importance in most businesses and not-for-profit organizations. Today’s accountants are important members of their organizations, using their business expertise, communication, interpersonal skills, and accounting knowledge to improve organizational decision making. Accountants play a key role in the continued growth of a prosperous society.
Accountants must be able to explain and analyze business data, excel in communications, teamwork, leadership, and possess technical and computer-based skills. The accountant in an increasingly global society is rapidly becoming both an information specialist as well as a business advisor. Accountants also act as the moral and ethical compass for business practices.

Additional coursework is required to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of Colorado.

“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
