Accounting Degrees Accountants scour the financial records of companies to ensure that bills are properly paid and that transactions are properly recorded.

Accountants work in a variety of settings in both private corporations and government agencies. Some accountants specialize in certain areas; internal auditors focus on improving an organization's controls in order to catch and prevent the mismanagement of information and finances.

A bachelor's degree in accounting is required for nearly all accounting jobs. Some employers prefer higher education such as a master's degree in accounting or a master's of business administration (MBA).

We are a great place to start looking for a college to start your accounting degree. College Compete narrows down your search to the best options possible.
