Accounting is that "memory bank" that not only keeps track of the past but also allows us to examine and analyze events so we can plan our future in the financial world. Simply stated, accounting is the recording, summarizing, and analysis of business or financial transactions and information Since accounting touches every aspect of our lives in one way or another, there will always be a need for qualified members of the accounting profession.

Certified public accountants are licensed professionals, and serve in a variety of roles and organizations. Most CPAs are employed by accounting firms, or are self-employed, providing auditing and tax services to a wide variety of clients. Many CPAs are employed by government, particularly in state and federal tax departments. Private corporations also employ CPAs for various accounting functions.
