First off, if you’re interested in pursuing accounting in the long run, you should read the requirements to become a CPA. Some states require a Masters degree or 150 credit hours in college or work experience in a public accounting firm. Find out what your state requires here: www.startheregoplaces.com
Accounting is a good way to learn the fundamentals of how any company operates. You’ll be privy to learning the cash inflows and outflows, the financial structure of the company, and how to help a company plan for the future. It’s a very useful background to have.
