Join a high-growth field

Positions for accountants and auditors are expected to grow 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Economic growth, increasing regulation and the globalization of the economy all point to strong demand for accounting professionals. (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)
