Sound decisions rest on the Decision-Support System (DSS). Needless to emphasize that the Accounting is regarded [C.T. Horngren] today as the number one DSS. The duty to cater to the need for sound and dependable supporting line of Accounting professional executives, manager-leaders rests with the university departments richly specializing in Accounting.
