Accounting: It's not what you think!

From movie characters to ‘nerdy’ costumes with suspenders, people love to stereotype accountants as socially-inept mathletes. While there are surely plenty of suspender-loving math whizzes in the biz, people of all backgrounds and personality types are thriving and finding their fit in the profession.

In this activity, students will watch three ThisWaytoCPA YouTube videos featuring five accounting graduate students who bust myths about accounting and share their reasons for pursuing the profession. Students will then answer reflection questions to dig deeper and better understand accountants’ roles in society.
