Let’s talk about starting salaries in public accounting.
Let’s assume a student has an undergraduate accounting degree, a MAcc degree, and has passed all 4 sections of CPA exam.
What do we think is a fair starting salary? #Accounting

Starting salaries in #accounting have gone from B school leaders to laggards. 1st year auditors today barely make more than an auditor who started in 2011 in nominal dollars and less in real dollars. The daily hours + 30 more credits + CPA demand fair compensation. $55K isn’t it. https://t.co/9Lc2hzELev
