An Accounting major traditionally leads to employment in public, private, government or nonprofit organizations. Although an associate business accounting degree will offer students entry-level skills in their occupation, a four-year bachelor’s degree is necessary for most professional-level positions. In the areas of public accounting, this must also be supplemented by professional certification (CPA) and often graduate work. The Certified Management Accounting designation is for private accounting.
