What is a good minor to pair with an Accounting major?
The only minors that I can think of are business administration, economics, management, finance, etc. Are there any outside of the business world that would complement accounting? Like technology, data analyzing, law, etc.
I hope all is well and great question
One minor I was recommended by my professors in college and I recommend to others as well is a minor in Computer Science. Knowing what I know now in the audit realm, having an IT background and understanding goes a far way when performing audits since for the most part systems, tools and IT related activities are most times apart of the process being audit.
I hope this helps.
There are two things that I wish I would have known in college that could have helped me in my post-college accounting career. Having strong writing skills and being really proficient with technology. In accounting you deal with a lot of people across departments and across countries. Being able to clearly, accurately, and concisely communicate is very helpful. Additionally, a lot of company processes require detailed documentation for internal and external users. A minor in English could help here.
In addition having a strong grasp of technology is great. Being able to feel comfortable across different operating systems and within different programs would give you an initial leg up when you start your career. Possible something in computer science might be of interest to you.
