Students who choose accounting as a major have an excellent foundation for exploring a wide variety of career paths. The majority of our majors begin their careers in the Big 4 and second tier public accounting firms. However, larger corporations that offer financial leadership rotation programs are also an excellent choice. Given that finance is based on an understanding of accounting, accounting majors have also gone directly into positions in finance (e.g., private equity). Accounting alumni, for example, have become partners in Big 4 firms and investment firms, CEOs and CFOs of large corporations, serial entrepreneurs, leaders in the not-for-profit sector, business school deans, and philanthropists.
