What can I do with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting?

Graduates with accounting degrees often pursue careers as professional accountants in business or government. However, this degree does not limit students to one field, and students may enter other business fields such as banking or financial management. Many students use this degree to prepare them to take the CPA exam and enter careers as certified public accountants.
