Careers in Accounting

"For me, a career in accounting has been like a day in a great orchard with ripe fruit on every tree and insufficient time to taste it all. Opportunities have been overwhelming. Rewards have been more than adequate. I think it will always be so." — Robert K. Mautz, an accounting legend
