Accounting is an incredibly popular field for those with a talent for and an interest in math and money. An accountant may work for the government, tax organizations, or any type of business that deals with monetary transactions; some accountants are self-employed contractors. Accounting professionals use their math skills to work with budgets, taxes, and financial projections. Because of the proven financial benefits to hiring accountants, more and more businesses are choosing to do so. Therefore, remarkably fast growth is expected in the accounting field.

Accountants are nearly always required to hold bachelor's degrees and certain certifications. However, because of the increasing interest in accounting, more and more professionals are opting to pursue advanced master's degrees and PhDs to improve their chances of advancing in the industry and earning more money.

Accounting degrees are a hybrid of business management and finance. Therefore, all accounting students must take multiple economics and finance courses to master market trends and learn to apply economic conditions to business models. Because accountants are often entrusted with forming the financial and business plans for businesses, they also take courses in management, business law, and strategic planning. Such courses are especially emphasized in advanced accounting degree programs.

Good accountants are good at math. In fact, some schools offer accounting specialization options for math majors, though most schools provide individual accounting degrees. However, math is just the beginning; the best accountants are also masters of communication, analysis, and strategy. They can be essential players in business fields, maximizing profits or minimizing losses.
