Accountants are vital to the success of any business, large or small. An accountant performs traditional auditing services, but may also offer financial, strategic, and tax advice to individuals and corporations; implement and develop advanced accounting software; or investigate and detect fraud and other criminal misconduct.
Employment growth in the accounting field is expected to remain strong for the next decade, with the Minnesota Dept of Employment and Economic Development listing accounting as one of the top 5 "High Demand/High Pay" occupations.
