  1. Two big things about accounting degrees: 1. Try to get into programs that can get you 150 credits during Undergrad and 24 accounting credits. 2. You should get the CPA (need 150+ credits in most states)

    1. @X neither master in ACC nor the CPA are worth shit unless you wanna become a manager specifically in financial statement audit in public accounting or you wanna do taxes. Other than that, its just some garbage pyramid scheme model that will give you a 10% raise in any job, if that.

      The accounting degree is good. You can do a lot with it. Thats all you need. If you are gonna get a masters, please dont do the MACC. Do a tech related master like MIS or Business Analytics. Tech is where the money and work life balance is, not in PA.

      Best of luck

    2. @X approximately 50% of accountants are CPAs, you need to at least have the 150 credits to work for big 4 and other large accounting firms (I recall during an interview with CLA, a top 10 accounting firm, they told me to work in Cali you need 150 credits to be an associate). It also shows your serious about accounting and you will be paid a lot more

    3. @X but getting a masters in accounting is a waste, cpa is fairly equivalent to a masters in accounting so instead get an mba or master in finance, economics, or another passion

  2. Does salary factor in cost of living because 89,000 for New York is just making it living by yourself in a studio apartment plus overhead. While In Houston it has a LCOL and 60,000 can get you pretty far…

    1. Depends where in NY. Only a tiny spot of the state is very expensive while the vast majority of the state is pretty affordable.

    2. @29 Lets Go You’re right, but in this instance it not close to Houston for what Houston has per cost of living…

  3. Thanks so much for your helpful videos. I talked to a tech recruiter recently and he said he has seen a lot of demand for people with accounting or finance backgrounds that can help implement ERP systems. He said people can make 70-80,000 starting out with that combo. Then they can make about 150,000 with a few years of experience. He said that he doesn’t see normal accountants doing that.

  4. I have a B.S. in accounting I never used. I couldn’t answer the CPA exam questions so I decided it wasn’t for me. The pay is way to low without that CPA designation. Don’t waste your time pursuing this career, there is no money in it. You would be better off in law enforcement or management.

    1. I would say yes. If you learn the fundamentals of journal entries and are taught how to use software like excel and QuickBooks then you can easily take a bookkeeping job which will pay you a living wage. This also opens the opportunity to transfer and finish your final two years in any business related degree you want or any non business degree but it would probably take an extra semester or two.

  5. Accounting Degrees can lead you to just about anything except maybe MIS or something. I’m my opinion Accounting, MIS, and Supply Chain are all in high demand. Not to mention Accounting you can pull all kinds of side gigs of you gave time.
