Accounting or Finance BS? Can accounting majors get finance jobs?
I am currently an MIS/ISOM and Accounting Major at a University in VA.

I have an interest in both and I've heard from some friends (not sure if theyre legitimate sources) that accounting majors can get finance jobs, but finance majors can not get accounting jobs.
