Accounting & Finance

Accountants make things happen – every day, in businesses of every size and type. Their analytical expertise is needed to make important financial decisions. Using the “language of business,” they assemble, analyze, process and communicate essential information about financial operations. With today’s strong economy, the need for accountants is high and, often, there are more job opportunities than there are individuals to fill them.

The Rowan-Cabarrus Accounting & Finance program can prepare students for successful careers in this growing field, with a curriculum proven to equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and professional growth. Graduates should qualify for entry-level accounting positions in many types of organizations, including accounting firms, small businesses, manufacturing firms, banks, hospitals, school systems and governmental agencies.

The FBI employs more than 2,000 accounting special agents.

Young certified accountant's salary ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 while seasoned accountants and top management officers earn as high as $200,000 annually.

Accounting offers stable employment even when the economy fluctuates.

Accountants use basic arithmetic & simple equations. Computers do most of the math. Accountants analyze & interpret the results.

The State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation scholarship has allowed me to continue my education in accounting at Rowan-Cabarrus while being able to continue my volunteer work with Mount Pleasant High School’s young student-athletes.
