You may think accounting is boring, but not in my class. You will no longer think of accountants as "bean counters," but will come to recognize them as business partners. It's our accounting systems that help plan what beans get planted in the first place. We design the planning and control systems used to determine the product and service mix that will maximize value.
The knowledge you gain will benefit your business career, whether through applying management accounting techniques or by communicating better with accounting colleagues at work. If nothing else, you will at least take with you a healthy dose of professional skepticism and always know to question the numbers.
We often forget that accounting is simply a tool to serve business and society; we should not be servants to accounting practice and convention. The thing that motivates me the most is to hear you begin to question these practices and conventions in class discussions.
