Accounting is a great major, which provides a lot of options for your future. I studied accounting and IT and can say I never regret my decision. Public accounting is a great place to start, but it is not the most thrilling/ enjoyable job. However, a few years in public accounting is a great pathway into a leading corporate position or finance. It is also an extremely stable job and always has a high hiring percentage (you are likely to graduate with a job). Additionally, if a student maintains outstanding grades many of the financial positions will be available to you as a graduate. It is a fantastic major decision and will provide many options for your future.
