Hi, Great question, I am not in Accounting but my sister in law is. Accounting is a good field as a general career and can offer a lot of specialization as well...I will offer a few suggestions for other courses...criminal justice is one area, with this you can go into Forensic Accounting and possibly have a career in a law enforcement agency. Another is public administration/government, this can open up careers for you in city, county, state and federal government. Anything in business and management will help you to be a leader/manager can really do almost anything with accounting, it depends a lot on your interests and goals as well. Good luck!

Hi Maia, I would suggest to take computer science and international business. As an accountant you will have to deal with different software/databases so technology knowledge might be really helpful. Also, being aware of diversity and different cultures in business world can help you as well. Best of luck!

There are many ways you can supplement your accounting degree. The industry is moving much more towards data analysis so I would suggest taking classes that deal with data science, database management, data visualizations. Another area finance or economics these are more “classic” pairings and while valuable may not give as much immediate benefit. Good luck with your accounting education and career.
