A major that allows students to learn how to maintain financial accounts and it really prepares students to be accountants by teaching them about the accounting principles things like auditing reporting budgeting and tax regulations that's very important guys because everybody at least if you're in the us .

To continue to be employed over the lifetime of your career so what is my conclusion for management information systems and for accounting i'm going to jump right into it management information systems rules if i was going to grade this .
I would say management information systems is a 4.8 out of a 5 and accounting is a 4.5 out of a 5. and the reason why i give management information systems a little bit of a higher grade is because of the salary in the job outlook now i gotta say this .
Accounting is very important and it is an essential business need somebody who's majoring in accounting and has a information systems minor is at as equal as having somebody who has a management information systems with the accounting minor and if you are a person that is in .
Accounting and you want to get into accounting information systems then you are going to do very well in your career as well too but overall from the basics of a looking at the accounting major as well as the management information systems major i personally think that the management .
Information system majors win just because of the salary in the job outlook i would say that accounting is not that far back and the reason why i say that is because the job outlook is at par but you can certainly see where every business needs an accountant and .
You will definitely be gainfully employed but i would also say this as well too is that the median seller is around 50 000 above average and you can make a lot more money if you get into things like it or if you get a cpa and other certifications so guys .
