    Accounting Question

    So I recently went to my freshman orientation (business major) and was really interested in an accounting program that they offered.
    I've heard all these stories about how boring accounting was and just wanted to ask for pro's/con's of accounting and if they outweighed the value of the program my university offered.

    The program is a integrated masters program which basically means you get a masters in 5 years (instead of doing undergrad and then grad), but I went in with enough credits to cut it down to a bachelor's and master's degree in 4years total (going to graduate with a masters class of '19)

    I'm currently an accounting major, but I'm thinking of changing to finance.

    I'd say accounting is way more valuable than just a general business degree, since accounting is a lot more specific in terms of duties and what you do, so jobs may be better for accounting. You'll need to get a CPA designation to get any decent-high paying job with accounting though.
    About the degree though, Accounting would be better than business, I'd say.
    Accounting degrees give people accounting jobs, but a general business degree is a lot more vague in terms of what job you'd get.

    Finance and accounting are very similar. Accounting is essentially finance with more emphasis on real world applications and calculations, which is what accountants do, while finance is more general and theory based.

    I heard accounting is like a basic skill that everyone needs, its a steady job but extremely boring and repetitive

    Initially it was easy, but by the end of the year It became hella boring. You just keep doing the same things over and over again

    Being a Budget Analyst is a pretty chill job it's almost the same as a accountant, might want to research about it.

    Its the same fucking thing... An Accountant does accounting. Like what?

    OT: I can tell you the basic day of an Accountant is easy as fuck once you master it. My accounting teacher explained to me her job as an accountant and half the time she told me she wasn't doing anything. You look over a few accounts and then the rest of your day you can dick around.
    I wouldn't major in that field though, its hella boring. If you want something more entertaining that is in the Finance field, take a look at financial planner or stock broker.

    You won't believe how boring it is.

    There is a certain basic you have to learn in accounting where this part is interesting. Once you have that basic, accounting becomes an easy piece of shit and all you do is the same thing over and over and over. Except, they try to snuff in some dumb mistakes and whatever to get you to fail. Now the maths provided in accounting, ai ai ai, some have the talent for it, I don't quite.

    However, accounting does teach students a good amount of formality, which I think is necessary and definitely not a waste.
    Problem is though, accounting is so popular, everyone wants to become an accountant or study accounting and get their own company up and running or take their parents' company over and all that stuff, it's a hard fight for a decent job if you're not already provided.
