About Accounting

Are you good with numbers and keeping things organized? Are business ethics important to you? Accounting professionals help to ensure that firms are run efficiently, public records are kept accurately, and taxes are paid properly and on time. They analyze and communicate financial information for various entities such as companies, individual clients, and federal, state and local governments. Beyond carrying out the fundamental tasks of the occupation—providing information to clients by preparing, analyzing, and verifying financial documents—many accountants also offer budget analysis, financial and investment planning, information technology consulting, and limited legal services.

The “Big Four” accounting agencies recruit from Rutgers Business School-New Brunswick, and the Accounting & Information Systems department is ranked #15 in the world for research productivity by Accounting and Finance.
