After earning an associate degree in accounting, you can typically look for entry-level work as a bookkeeper, accounting assistant, payroll clerk or tax preparer.
With Herzing University you can transfer credit earned from an associate degree into a bachelor’s degree program (up to 90 approved credits). Some students prefer to gain real-world work experience before later continuing on for their bachelor’s degree.
