Any aspiring accountant needs to be clever when it comes to their finances, and so it makes sense that you would be interested in discovering the highest paying jobs for an accounting degree.
Before we dig deeper into the highest paying salaries, you may be wondering whether you really need a degree to be an accountant.
It is not a necessity to have a degree to become an accountant. However, you will find that most accountants do. So if you want to be competitive, a degree will certainly help you to stand out in this competitive job market. Plus, you will get access to the better paying jobs as well.
So, how can you make the most of your accounting degree by securing a higher paying job? According to Glassdoor, some of the highest paying jobs are as follows:
- Investment Banking Managing Director (£56,000 - £327,000)
- Director of Analytics (£57,000 - £190,000)
- Investment Banker (£50,000 - £159,000)
- Tax Director (£78,000 - £150,000)
- Equity Analyst (£39,000 - £116,000)
- Credit Risk Manager (£46,000 - £92,000)
- Financial Planning and Analysis Manager (£34,000 - £86,000)
- Senior Financial Analyst (£37,000 - £72,000)
Of course, there is always the potential to earn more by setting up your own business, which is a route many accountants decide to go down after building years of experience.
