I'm finishing a BM in music education next semester, and have already completed a minor in business administration. I don't want to teach music in the long term, and for a long time I have considered pursuing a masters in accounting after teaching a few years full time. However, I've recently considered just completing the requirements to sit for the CPA exam. I'll be graduating with about 160 credits and fulfill the business course requirements for my state. I need an additional 10 classes in accounting courses. It would be more cost effective to go straight for the cpa, but with a bachelors in music and minor in business, would public accounting firms be willing to hire me to achieve that one year work requirement?
