Bachelor’s Degree in AccountingLooking for a career where you can earn a living in both good times and bad? Then you may wish to consider earning a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Everest University Online, a division of Everest University.

Accounting is a field that often seems immune from the ups and downs of the national economy. For example, even in these uncertain economic times, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts “accountants and auditors are expected to experience much faster than average employment growth from 2008-18.”[1] The BLS also notes, “This occupation will have a very large number of new jobs arise, about 279,400 over the projections decade. An increase in the number of businesses, changing financial laws and corporate governance regulations, and increased accountability for protecting an organization’s stakeholders will drive job growth.”

Job stability in accounting is particularly strong for women because accounting has traditionally been known as a male-dominated field, according to a recent article published on Forbes.com. The article also noted, “This profession is also working-mother friendly. Some accountants, for example, choose to focus on taxes or auditing, allowing them to be selective with their clients and their time.”[2]
