The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics projects at 16% growth in the accounting field now through 2020, so students in accounting programs will have many different places to look for jobs when they graduate.
Since accountants work with numbers and computer software to tabulate, record, and track financial data, accounting is particularly well-positioned to be studied online. The mathematics and policy of the accounting profession are very applications-oriented, so online coursework is often direct practice for what professionals do in the field day-to-day.
