Accounting courses are in the boom right now. Statistics show that most students, upon graduating middle school, will likely choose accounting, or accountancy, over other popular courses like Computer courses (Information Technology, Computer Science) and other Business Administration courses.
Of course, that (Accounting) being one of the most popular courses today, universities take advantage of this to make an easy profit and offer accountancy courses on their curriculum. International schools also join in the fray and offer online programs and distance learning opportunities for those who have no time to study, as they are either working or cannot enroll on a university due to a number of different reasons.
