A lot of high finance executives actly has bachelor in accounting and continued on to have finance Masters or taken MBA
The moral of the story is donít start from audit and big 4, never gonna make it
Plus nowadays reputation of nTU accounting really down to the drain
Become big 4 audit factory the big finance bois donít even bother to organise good networking events in ntu
Yes wish I could know earlier before uni / as undergraduate
To add on to my pt above , if u have friends or siblings choosing courses, either go with ACBS or Business single degree
Accounting single degree nowadays people auto assume u going into big 4 and itís hard to argue that u have interest in finance otherwise why u not choose banking and finance major
Also, used to be A/AAA now whatever ah Mao ah dog going into with lousy grades , plus the non-3 uni also offering accounting
I have seen some private uni student with average grade joining my team too
Is funny and sad how this industry become so Low standard and budget

Most of them are burnt out now as senior but stuck looking for an exit opp. Quite sad for them tbh.
My clients all shifting their accounting functions to Malaysia /India cos itís cheaper and itís a trend across all commercial sectors. exit opportunities not as good as before le why should
Company hire an audit senior when half price can hire an experienced accountant in Malaysia who can do the same work

Is NTU that bad nowadays? Those finance jobs won't be too hardworking to organise events at NTU since they got enough demand. Probably will just host it in their own offices instead. But if you are talking about IB jobs and etc, an accounting degree is not a must but the knowledge itself is always a plus

An accounting degree can be pivot into a general biz degree and you don't have to focus only on audit jobs as fresh graduates. No need to **** on an accounting degree

If u read the first part of my answer u would know Iím not *** on accountancy

Big 4 usually outearn others at director level and above (about 12 yoe). Starts at a pathetic 3+ k though.

Seeing your career as a marathon, it can make sense to some, but not all. So stop whining la u guys.

Comp science has not updated itself too. It is just that it becomes a popular career choice nowadays due to those tech companies, and tech companies are highly profitable or have alot of funding.

I think current accounting or biz sch curriculum actually has some courses on python or other data analytics related tools. I guess that's as much of an update as they can get. But unfortunately, Big4 pay will still remain **** given it is related to audit fees which tends to get competitive

lol don't blame the degree if you didn't study hard enough.

You could have reached for First Class and opened more doors you know.

Surely that few months of mugging would be easier than doing OT in audit.
