The answer depends on where you want to work... in the United

States, to work for the government as an accountant you need at

least a bachelor's degree in the field. Many private firms want

someone who has earned a master's degree in either accounting or

auditing, or an MBA with a specialty in one or the other.

However, the important qualification for many positions is

post-bachelor's: you must take and pass the examination to be a

Certified Public Accountant. The certification is separate from the

academic degree, and has its own qualifications to be met.
