Lucas’s Answer

It depends on what your abilities and skills are. Accounting math is very different than other types of math, which can be good for some people and bad for others. I am a business major and for me, accounting was not too difficult but I just did not find it interesting. For other people, it is very interesting- and you can do a lot with it. I would say the basics of accounting are, in my personal opinion, not overtly difficult or hard to grasp. However, higher end accounting classes focus on more mathematical concepts and some incorporate programming into it- if these are things you want to avoid, this might not be the degree for you, but if you really find accounting interesting and these things come fairly easy to you, you might love these classes!

Very Difficult
Thank you comment icon Hi Peter, as someone who has taken an introductory accounting class before, what's difficult about it? And which type of work would be classified as difficult? I think it would be a bit more helpful if you expanded on your answer! All the best! Aun

Yuyue’s Answer

For me, the difficulty mostly depends three things, yourself, your school and your professors. Some people in my classes understood concepts easily and they were able to nail their tests, for me it was really hard. Personally, I had to study for hours in order to get a grasp on certain concepts. Sadly, I think my brain is not build for accounting as my parents forced me into this field and I didn't have a chance to change it. However, some of the professors at my school are really good at explaining the concepts and they actually make the learning process feel more rewarding. For some other professors, even they are not teaching the concepts about the field that I will be entering, it feels great talking with that professor which actually helped me find a path and an internship I am currently in.
