Anyone getting or did get an accounting degree?

I live in Arkansas.  I have my Accounting and Business Admin degree.  I originally wanted to obtain my CPA, but as I completed different internships, I realized I didn’t like Accounting.  I like the rules, and procedures, but it was boring.  However, I do believe that have an Accounting Degree opens up doors for you.  I’m currently a Business Analyst, and they hired me for my Accounting background.  I love my job, because I get the analytical side of Accounting, but it’s not so black and white.  

As far as online goes, it depends, some CPA firm prefer for you to obtain your degree from somewhere accredited.  Plus  having a GPA of 3.0 or above.  

I wouldn’t say it was hard finding a job, but with my first job I did have to settle.  I graduated in 2012, and settled for an Accounts Receivable Clerk position because so many people who graduated with me could not find a job.  I still have friends who are looking for “Accounting” jobs.  Hope this helps and good luck!
