An entry level accounting salary can vary, depending on what time of firm you start your career at. What I mean by that is if you start your career in a small, medium or big firm. The big accounting firms (PwC, EY, Deloitte, KPMG) typically start an associate at $45,000-$60,000. I know from experience that your education, specifically a master's degree, can boost your starting salary upwards $10,000. If you obtain a useful master's degree for the field you enter, the firm may pay you extra because you are now a bigger asset to the team.
