Reviews of BS in Accountancy graduates:

J. H.
◈ Studied Bachelor in Accountancy
◈ At Polytechnic University of the Philippines
◈ Graduated 1992

list bulletAbout my college education: The interesting part of going to this University is how professional the teacher and the dedication in teaching the students. However, the accessibility is the difficult part as you have to walk from Altura to the gate of PUP and taking the stairs up. Yet its enjoyable as you really push your self to learn knowledge on the best State U in the country. On the challenging side, I would consider the subject being taught on our course. There are also external challenges as PUP is known to be patriotic. Thus freedom of expression is being exercise on our school. I witnessed how the teachers respect the students. I remember on our Economic class we are at the middle of discussion when the students marched and shouted on our corridors. The teacher stops and continue the topic after the rally.

list bulletMy current job: After graduated in 1992, I started a job in an Accounting firm. Then 20 years later, I avail early retirement to have my own business.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes. What we learned at the university is being applied on my past works. Accounting principles and entries were experience.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It was easy then as job openings are not complicated during our time. Unlike today, more jobs on BPO, IT and skilled are offered. For Accounting, you need to be a CPA and young to be accepted.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Accountancy: I can only recommend my course if you will take the Board exam and pass it. Like me, I went straight ahead in work and was not able to take the Board. Thus it slimmed my chances to take other accounting jobs from other company. If you took Accountancy, target a big company that you will last to work. Salary is always leveled on knowledge earned. Regular Accounting has an average salary. CPA has higher salary. CPA + Law, the best.
