Hey guys. I'm a freshman in college and I'm majoring in Accounting. I'm doing fine in my Accounting class now, but I am doing a research paper for my English class. I need to write it on a social issue dealing with my major. So I was wondering, what kind of social issues are there with Accounting? I cannot think of any, so any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Enron? Madoff Scandal. There are lots of big time social issues that are going on now about 'ethics' of accounting and business.

You could write about how my brother (trainee accountant in his 2nd year) is on his final warning for going on the internet whilst on the job, whilst the new guy is on the internet 24/7 and they're just turning a blind eye to it. I pretty much got an essay about this the other day.

How, it is slowly becoming unnecessary due to technology?

sup bro.

@TS - Uh. I'm not sure what you mean really. Companies have to think about certain social issues such as the morale of their workforce, or making sure the local community/and their customers are happy, but I dunno about accountants?

kinda off topic but do you like accounting? I'm a freshman in college and I'm currently an engineering major. its hard as hell and i'm not sure I wanna stick with it. I was thinking about switching into the school of business (accounting, finance, etc....)

I'm sorry man, but I wouldn't suggest it, you have to think about the economy and availability of jobs after you are out of college. Accounting is just becoming less and less relevant and fewer people are becoming necessary for it. I'd suggest doing something that someone needs if you don't have your mind set on doing something.

I know that question isn't directed at me but I will answer it anyway. I want to major in international business administration. Out of all my business classes the one that I find least interesting is accounting. Of course it's all subjective so it can be different for you.
