accountancy is more of logic, logic, logic and sort of business sense ...just a piece of advice, dont choose accountancy if your heart is not into it, might regret it. Classroom solving problems can be very exciting but actual practice is different. This profession can be very boring and (in my opinion) is more of a bean-counting or if you are in audit (fault-finding). damn how exciting!!
yeah, you're correct, if only i can turn back time...
anyway, kung pera-pera lang ang usapan...you dont have a problem, this is one of the professions na very in demand sa pinas and abroad.

Want something more exciting than accountancy? Take up a double degree in Economics and Finance. And then take the three levels of exams to become a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). CFA charter holders are one of the most (if not already the most) in-demand professionals in the Finance industry. There are less than a thousand CFA charter holders in the Philippines. You should take a look at their paychecks though. Makes you want to die with envy. Investment analysis, to me, is more exciting than accountancy/audit simply because it deals with the formulation and application of financial strategies under various constraints/scenarios. Studying for the CFA subjects you to the rudiments of financial statement analysis (accounting), corporate finance, economics, equity and fixed income valuation, derivative and alternative investment analysis, portfolio management, and more importantly, the ethical and professional standards in which the financial markets operate in.
Many of the accountants I meet during the course of work all tell me the same thing. If they had known Finance was as exciting as it is early on during their college life, they would have chosen not to take accountancy.
