What Can I Do With An Accounting Degree?

By Fred Phillips

1. Professional Accountant

Most accounting graduates go on to pursue a professional accounting designation, while working for a public accounting firm, a for-profit or not-for-profit organization, or a governmental organization. Information about the paths to the various professional accounting designations in Canada is available at http://www.cica.ca/become-a-ca/how-to-become-a-ca/index.aspx, http://www.cga-canada.org/en-ca/Programs/Pages/ca_become_CGA.aspx, and http://www.becomeacma.com/

2. Academic

The main alternative option to a professional accounting career is a career in academics, which usually requires completing post-graduate study. Information about a Masters program in accounting is available at http://www.edwards.usask.ca/mpacc/ and information on earning a PhD in accounting is available at http://www.byuaccounting.net/mediawiki/index.php?title=Main_Page.
