Accounting at St. Mary’s

Professor of accounting teaching

Accounting is the recording, measurement and communication of financial transactions. Accountants determine the financial health of organizations, from assets to liabilities to cash flow.

Every organization must keep track of “the money” and demonstrate to its stakeholders how well it is performing.

As a result, accountants are an integral part of any organization, whether it is a private or a public corporation, a nonprofit organization or a governmental entity.
