Reviews of BS in Management Accounting graduates:

Race Jay Tubongbanua
Studied BS in Management Accounting
at University of San Agustin , Iloilo City
Graduated: 2010

Why did I choose this course:
Actually I had my eye in owning and managing a business someday. In order for me to do that is logically a business course.

About my college education:
Lot of stuff accounting, taxation, business law and management are only few of those. For the most difficult I would say the research, since you have to spend a lot of time in getting data and master your work in order for you not to shoot yourself in front of the panel. And on contrary it is also the most enjoyable since you have the chance to see the other side of life, and the sense of fulfillment after the defense it the best feeling ever. I did fail subjects twice and no excuse for that it is due to my irresponsible act.

Attitude and traits to succeed would be patience, average in numbers will do, sociable and creative yes that is right creativity is one of the main key.

My current job:
I'm currently and Accounts Receivable personnel of a company in Alabang.
I do handle revenue report, ageing accounts and credit and collection.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Taxation, excel and accounting are the things I still use in current job, but to be exact 70% of my major subject are applicable in regards to it's content.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Less than a month I guess, a bit of a luck from me.

Do I recommend studying BS in Management Accounting:
It depends. If you love to surround yourself with business like environment then I will recommend. But you hate numbers and business then you already know the answer.

If your aiming a big salaries, then I apologize but this is not the course for you. For a fresh graduate you can range 10-15 thousand, but in less than 5 years you can get 30 thousand. Reality in salaries for this course is far beyond the digit. It is your attitude that will drive you to success, why? because you could be a manager, director or VP for finance someday, the business lingo or terms will not be a problem or even own your own business. It is a matter of choice on what you want to be, your envision to yourself. It is also applicable to all the courses. Just remember in life learning is unlimited and on the things you want to be? dude sky is your limit.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
In every thing you do, there must always be love, once you have learned to love this course everything will follow. I assure you that you are not required to be a genius in math or numbers. All you need is to appreciate the course and be proud of it, hesitations will not do you good. If you want a thing go and work for it.
