Help investors make the right financial decisions

Accounting provides the information necessary to make important financial decisions at a high level. Investors will look at financial reports to see what is going right for the company, compare performances of different companies, and predict future performance. Using this information, investors will decide where to allocate their savings and how to adjust their investment portfolio. In the Accountancy track you will learn how to provide assurance on this information through your audit. You will get oversight to internal issues like fraud as well as staying in compliance with both national and international regulations.
