Is a career in accounting right for you?
If you want to earn an accounting degree or take business classes when it is most convenient for you (and not according to a set schedule or place), then online education may be the answer for you.
Many working adults just don’t have the energy or time to commute to a campus classroom after a hard day’s work. Online courses can offer you the freedom and flexibility that conventional campus business schools can’t.
Online accounting classes have many benefits:
• Flexible hours — you can take your classes at anytime
• Learn at your own pace — your schedule is dictated by you
• Counselors are available for you via email or phone
• Many degree programs are accredited
A Solid Alternative to Campus Programs
Online students have access to multimedia, virtual classroom discussions, personalized guidance from instructors and counselors, text books, and virtually anything else that can be accomplish in a standard campus. An online classroom is always open so you can customize your schedule to your personal needs.
Degree and Certification Options
While some students enroll in two-year degree programs, the majority of students attempt to earn an undergraduate degree.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting, many graduates attempt to pass the CPA exam in order to become a registered CPA.
CPAs provide financial services such as estate planning, tax preparation, financial accounting, corporate finance, and other related fields. The best opportunities for career positions go to accountants who hold a CPA designation.
Master’s degrees in accounting are also available both online and at campus schools. While a graduate degree isn’t necessary, studies have shown that graduates who hold a master’s degree make more in starting salary than those who hold a bachelor’s degree.
