Accounting Topics

Accounting is more than counting money and keeping ledgers; it encompasses many different types of activities.  It is a means to understand the present and plan for the future.  It's about managing, recording, and reporting assets accurately to ensure the integrity and prosperity of businesses and institutions.

Accounting Services consists of many different areas that cover a range of functions. These functions work together, along with our campus partners, to accomplish appropriate stewardship of Cornell's financial assets.
