Why Accounting at Bay Path University?

At Bay Path, we recognize accounting as an essential function of business, large or small, profit or non-profit, and we prepare our students to excel within the profession.  

As an accountant, you must enjoy working with numbers, but more important, you must understand what those numbers represent for an organization.  Your work provides critical insight into the health of a bottom line, a check and balance for fiscal integrity, or an analysis that could lead to a new way of doing business.  Love of math, details, and organization are good qualities you must have as an accountant, but also think of communication skills. Often, you will be working with teams—and you’ll interact with clients. The art of negotiation, too, is a vital part of your day-to-day life.  Accounting principles have remained the same, but the profession of accounting is constantly evolving.
