Will 29 be too old to start studying accounting ?

<p>I am not 29 but I think when it will be a possibility to study accounting I will be 29 .
Is that to old to start it ?
I mean it's 4 years so I'll be 33 by the time I hit the job market . Will anyone hire me then ?
At that age and with only a bs in accounting ?</p>

<p>It’s not too old to start and I have seen friends enter accounting past the age of 33.</p>

<p>Do not hesitate for one second. You will be 33 either way - one way with an accounting degree or age 33 without an accounting degree.</p>

<p>I am a CPA and believe you could easily have 30 or more years of an excellent career ahead of you starting at age 33. </p>

<p>I worked for a Big 4 firm out of college and one of the most determined people there was a woman that went back for a second college degree in accounting and started as a staff member close to age 40. She outperformed most people.</p>

<p>Thanks for the support guys . Is it also the same for finance major ? Try to get into the heads of an employer for a sec…</p>

<p>Agree with others. Many people go back to school or start late for business degrees. Good luck.</p>

<p>I’d consider 29 to be still fairly young, at least in terms of being able to get a solid career going. There are people a lot older than you going for business degrees of all kinds. Good luck.</p>

<p>I entered accounting at 28 and got a got a job offer well before I graduated. It may not be 33, but I was above the average age for college graduates. I would only be concerned if you wanted to go into public accounting at 40+. That might be a tough sell, but I say you’d be perfectly fine at 33.</p>

<p>Thanks for the encouragement everybody .</p>
