Which is the best course? Accountancy or Management?

Im in my first year college this coming juen and I get really confuse for my course. I confirmed the Accountancy during the enrollment but it has a qualifying exam to know whether I will be disqualified in my course or not. Well I had a friend whosaid that he will prefer management because it is a general course and there's a lot of jobs in it while Accounting are mostly in banks. Now im planning to fail my examination but I think I will regret the 1st sem that I will be wasting.

Somebody advice me please?

Your friend is right that management offers a much broader range of possibilities than accounting. Accounting only deals with the financial issues where management can qualify you for a broad range of jobs from the many small divisions of an organization to the CEO at the top. That is not to say that a person with an accounting background could never be CEO. Understanding the finances is one of the most critical areas of what a CEO does. I'm just saying that the route to the top is a much narrower path for an accountant than a manager.

To make your choice, consider what you would be happy doing every day of your working life. Would you want to only crunch the numbers or would you rather deal with a wide range of challenges directed toward meeting the organizations goals?

Well, I never like Accounting that much. Before I knew whats inside the management course, the people around me said that Accounting is one of the best course I can take. I chose the course that will made my life in the future successful. But my friend said that I will never be an employee forever so he will prefer management for me. So yes, thank you. Im going to fail my examination so that I can shift to Sales Management. Thanks for the response, Rob. Thats helpful :)
No doubt Accountancy is best. CA is one of the most rewarding careers for professionals aiming to make an impact in the field of finance and economics.J.K.Shah Classes (https://www.jkshahclasses.com/) is one of the best centers for CA aspirants which is in Mumbai. My senior suggested me to take the Classes here and also many students from different parts of India opt for their Classes.
