This is Accounting?!

“Wow! That sounds so exciting!”

Okay, so that’s probably not the typical reaction when you tell someone you’re an Accounting major. We get it. For whatever reason, the world’s perception of accounting is still tinged with the image of desk-bound introverts and pocket-protectors.

Truth is, accounting today is among the most digitally-driven, data-centric, dynamic professions anywhere, and our value – to companies in every industry – has never been greater. “Day-to-day accounting work is rapidly becoming digitized and automated,” explains Brian Miller, BDO National Partner, Audit Transformation. “What does that mean for humans? More time for analysis, insight, creativity, guidance – all the things we really enjoy doing.”
