Famous Accounting Majors Who You May Know
The accounting and auditing professions go back 5,000 years or more! Legend has it that wealthy folks, wanting to keep track of their possessions (cattle, stores of grain, gold ornaments, etc.), hired scribes to keep records of their lists of possessions as they bought, sold, or traded them. From time to time, a count of possessions would be made and compared to the records maintained by the scribe. Any unexplained losses would be a signal that something was amiss and worthy of investigation.
