From My Point of View

“The reason why I chose Accounting as my major was because there is a wide variety of jobs that I can apply for after graduating college. Accounting is also one of the most desirable degrees worldwide and you are almost guaranteed to find a job upon graduation. Accounting has transformed from just sitting behind a desk 40 hours a week to going out in the public to conduct audits and examine fraud cases; that’s why I chose Accounting as my major.” – Jordan Roberts, ’12
