Why do I need accounting? Consider the following scenario: Your friend (who is also in school) just emailed you to express frustration with his accounting class. In the email, he said, “Why do I need to take accounting? What will I ever need to know about reporting and analyzing long-lived assets? I am a management major.” Write a 100- to 250-word response to your friend, including specific details about the benefits of learning accounting. Focus particularly on reporting and analyzing long-lived assets from a manager’s perspective.
