I'm currently a sophomore (Rising Junior) at a target school for accounting. Would be possible to land a FT position at the Big 4 without having an accounting degree or being CPA-Eligible?
I am currently a double major in accounting and business administration. I plan on dropping the accounting major when I graduate. I currently have quite of bit of accounting experience (with companies, not audit/tax/etc.) and I believe I can land a Summer Internship with the Big 4 since I'm still technically an accounting major.
The Big 4 only recruits in the Fall only so I would secure an internship then. Usually the Big 4 (at least at my school), convertsto FT after graduation. However, since I'm planning on dropping the accounting major when I graduate, will that affect my FT offer? (This is presuming my Summer Internship converts to FT)... Would I be able to land a FT with another Big 4 if I don't have an accounting degree?
Also, I don't plan on taking any UD accounting courses... Could that affect my FT eligibility?
