Reviews of BS in Accountancy graduates:

M. D.
◈ Studied BS in Accountancy
◈ At Colegio de Dagupan
◈ Graduated 2003

list bulletAbout my college education: Learning accountancy was interesting but difficult. Well, learning is not always easy. Adjustment or learning will definitely require patience in studying and hard work to understand every bit of information. At first, it was quite enjoyable, until lessons gets more complicated or harder, it is quite frustrating actually to study every night. I admit that i could not say 'accounting' is my favorite subject (actually my favorite subject is Math), but then only after i got my on-the-job training, i appreciated what i learned from studying accounting.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working as Finance and Axapta Manager in a private company in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Everything i learned from studying, were very useful. Well, not as complicated as it seems when studying, but it is all worth it. Working is easier than studying. Since i am working in Finance, my knowledge in accounting helps a lot.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It was not that long because the company that i went for on-the-job training absorbed me. Also when i changed jobs, it did not take me so long to find a new one.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Accountancy: I recommend this course only to those who are interested in problem solving or math. Patience and hard work requires this course, well for sure for every course, but this is essential in learning so much of different accounting subjects especially Audit. I could say that i fulfilled my dreams in taking this course. I used to dream when i was young that my table is full of papers for checking, and now this is my job. Career wise and salary wise, i could say i am fulfilled. I dreamt of working a simple job but i got higher than what i expected.
