The accounting program prepares its graduates for professional careers in public, corporate, and governmental accounting, and for advanced graduate study in accounting. The program provides the background necessary in areas of accounting such as financial reporting, auditing, taxation, cost management, budgeting, accounting information systems, and management advisory services.
Accounting is often considered to be the "language of business." Managers of companies use accounting information to help them with planning, controlling, and decision-making activities associated with their organizations. The accounting program within the Accounting Department of the School of Business at Central Connecticut State University prepares its graduates for challenging positions in the business world. Alumni of our program currently have industry positions such as auditors in public accounting firms, internal auditors in insurance companies, management accountants in manufacturing firms, accountants in both State and Federal government agencies (including positions as special agents for the FBI), and management consultants in consulting firms.

Besides their emphasis on excellence in classroom teaching, most of our faculty are involved in additional activities such as writing college textbooks, publishing articles in professional journals, presenting research papers at national professional conferences, and performing consulting work for business firms in the Hartford area.
