    You can get your CPA and do a number of things from general accounting to anything with financing, especially if you are Bi-lingual

    I have a son who has his masters degree in accounting and in a relatively few years is earning a substantial income most college graduates would be very happy with.  He did not need any other degree to achieve this, but some would recommend that an accounting degree coupled with a law degree has some advantages.  Good analytical skills, a love for accounting, an ability to turn businesses around turning deficits into surpluses are his keys to success.  Good luck.  Once you have your bachelors in accounting, you should be able to finance your own masters degree while obtaining it.

    It’s an excellent choice for a degree as it leads to a profession that is not just rewarding and challenging, but also recession-proof. In fact, at times when budget strings need to be tightened and strict financial regulations prevail, the demand for accountants can actually go up. If you are interested in this profession, the first step is to enroll for a Bachelor’s in Accounting degree at a school of your choice. Depending on the career path you choose, you may also have to get a CPA certification once you graduate from your degree program.
