A few questions regarding accounting courses & MAcc [#permalink]
11 Nov 2011, 07:10
I have a few questions regarding accounting courses and MAcc programs. Please help, thanks!
1. I recently graduated from college with a bachelor of arts degree. I would like to get a master's degree in accounting, but I really need some advice on taking accounting courses.
My situation: I took introductory financial accounting for the first time in 2008, but I withdrew from the course. Then I retook the same class at the same school (a 4-yr college) in 2009 and received a letter grade of B.
I am current taking classes at a different college, where I received transfer credit for the intro FA class I took at my alma mater. Thus, I am currently taking Managerial Accounting.
However, it has been 2.5 years since I retook the intro FA course. I honestly don't think I have a 100% understanding of the basics taught in the intro FA course, despite having retaken it once.
So, would it be a smart decision for me to retake introductory financial accounting?
Or is it possible to go onto intermediate financial accounting without a 100% understanding of the basics taught in the introductory financial accounting course?
2. Would retaking intro FA for a second time hurt my chances when applying to top-tier MAcc programs in the future?
3. Would retaking intro FA for a second time hurt my chances when applying for full time jobs at Big4 in the future?
