Accounting Grads Can Expect to Make About $53K Out of School

Students graduating in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting can expect an average starting salary of $52,900, which is down 0.8 percent from $53,300 in 2013, Andrea Koncz, NACE employment information manager, told AccountingWEB. However, the latest salary figure is still substantially higher than the 2012 average of $49,700. [AWeb]
