The average starting salary for students graduating this year with a business major – including accounting – has declined slightly over the last year, according to the latest salary survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
Students graduating in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting can expect an average starting salary of $52,900, which is down 0.8 percent from $53,300 in 2013, Andrea Koncz, NACE employment information manager, told AccountingWEB. However, the latest salary figure is still substantially higher than the 2012 average of $49,700.
