Did You Know They Studied Accounting

The team at MasterCPE is focused on helping CPAs with their continuing education by offering CPE courses that help them stay current and advance in their field. We provide these courses in a very cost-effective and accelerated manner, which is something we know people truly appreciate. While we are serious about what we do, there’s always time to relax a bit and have some fun.

The field of accounting has an undeserved reputation for being rather dull and uncreative. However, by the looks of it, some of the most influential people in the world studied to become accountants and it seems as though inspiration can sometimes be key. What may come, as a surprise to many is that many famous individuals from jazz saxophonist Kenny G to TV sitcom star Bob Newhart, studied to become accountants over the years.

Even the British comedian, Eddie Izzard studied accounting at the University of Sheffield. While his career in accounting didn’t seem to look to bright, it was during this time that he was inspired to become a comedian. And Bob Newhart, the famous TV star and comedian once had dreams of accounting before heading off to his career in Hollywood. While he did have big accounting dreams early on, nowadays he says that getting “close enough” when balancing his own books is good enough for him. Lastly, Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger tried his hand at accounting when he was younger which comes as a surprise to many. Although only lasting a year, Jagger studied accounting and finance at the London School of Economics. Soon after his studies in London ended, Jagger headed off to become a rock ‘n’ roll legend.
