    Providing assistance to minority groups looking to pursue a career in accounting sounds like a great program. Getting accepted into any of the top business schools in the U.S. is no easy task. The fact that the NABA gives advice to aspiring accountants is quite useful in this economy. Jobs in accounting have seen a big increase in recent years; three out of the five best companies to work for in 2010 are accounting firms.
