AbstractThere has been many articles of literature that comment on the decreasing number of accounting graduates ever since the adoption of the 150-requriment for CPAs. This study looks at the extent to which entry-level salaries effect the number of students who decide to pursue a degree in accounting. The results of this study suggest that entry-level salaries are a major part of the decision-making process for students when selecting their degree plan. The study highlights the importance that students place on earning potential in the early years of their careers and speaks as to why they may chose one degree plan over another.
