A specialty in Accounting offers superb career opportunities. Most accounting majors are hired by their last semester of study and often times there are more jobs than graduates to fill them. Accounting graduates work in public accounting as auditors, tax specialists and consultants; in private firms in both financial and cost accounting and for governmental and not-for- profit entities as internal auditors and financial accountants. Completion of required coursework can lead to licensing as a Certified Public or Managerial Accountant or graduate degrees in accounting or law.
