I was hoping an accountant could comment on this posting. I have a degree in mathematics from UVM and want to become an accountant. I found an online school (www.wgu.edu) that has a bachelors in accounting that I could get in 2 years. Or, I could apply to the local college (www.jsu.edu) and take 3 years to get a degree in accounting. I would like to know the job prospects for each choice. On the one hand I want to get done as soon as possible and start working, however, I am afraid with the online school that it might be harder to find a job. Please provide your comments. I appreciate the ability to pick the brains of accountants out there.
Thank you, Pegeen
