Accounting concerns the collection, processing and reporting of information about the financial performance of economic organizations. The demand for this information arises from many sources including the need for management to report to owners and shareholders, the need to make decisions that promote the success of the organization and the need to comply with tax laws and other legal requirements. The accounting program at Wilmington College is designed to prepare students for a wide variety of career options in public accounting, industry and government. In recognition of the role of accountants in today's economy, the program emphasizes the development of both the ability to use the outputs of the accounting process and the skills necessary to design, operate and manage accounting information systems.
