Accounting is the language of business. It tells you if you’re winning or losing – exploding or imploding. Accounting is the language you need to succeed.

You’ll acquire this language through UNB’s Accounting programs by learning how to record, interpret, and report economic data. Once you master this language, you’ll have the answer to key questions: Is your company succeeding or failing? Is it using its resources effectively? What changes should be implemented? What does its future look like?
