II have chosen a degree in accounting because I have always enjoyed working with numbers. I enjoyed math classes in high school, but I knew that I wanted to be working in some sort of business field. I have aunts and uncles in the accounting field, so when declaring a major in college, I chose accounting. Once attending college, I declared a major in accounting because I enjoyed the number crunching and the logic of the financial statements. I wasn’t sure that I had chosen the right degree, until I completed my pre-business accounting classes. After excelling in both these classes, I knew that this would be a major that I would not only do well in but also enjoy. Another reason why I have chose a accounting degree is because I look forward to the continued education aspect of the profession. I do not want to be stuck in a static profession, when I know that there is no limit to the amount of education I can receive. I would like to continue learning and building on my skills and knowledge throughout my career. I want to be familiar with various businesses and see the interworkings and parts within a business. With accounting, I can work with various clients and businesses and gain knowledge about other professions and industries. Finally, I chose an accounting degree because in these unstable economic times, the demand for accountants seems to be relatively high. I believe that there will always be a high demand for accounts because accounting is the language of business.
