Take a tour of accounting programs on this week’s episode of the YesCollege podcast! Scott is joined by Dr. Michael Paz, Assistant Professor of Accounting in the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business. In addition to having experience working in accounting professionally, Michael has taught a multitude of classes covering different accounting subjects. He offered up some unique insight into not only the profession as a whole, but the academic path accounting students will often follow.
Accounting is a wide ranging field, with different areas such as financial accounting, managerial accounting, forensic accounting, and more. Michael breaks these fields down, offers up information on what careers you can pursue with an accounting degree, what often trips students up, and more.
