Accounting is an important aspect of business administration, as it deals with the financial matters of the company. Graduates with an accounting degree are often well placed in corporate positions. Accountants are required to analyze and come up with solutions to complex problems that arise in organizations.

After completing a degree course in business administration, all students have to undergo a practical test which puts them under pressure to apply what they have learnt. The test that must be taken by all Nigerian accountants before gaining entry into a reputed institution is the AHLS (All Together Language Assessment Test) based on the fourth round of the standardized exam. The test covers reading, writing and pronunciation of key phrases. The reading section assesses various combinations of vocabulary, sentence structure, reading comprehension and spelling. The writing section assesses analytical and communicative skills in addition to reader preference, format, tone, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

Another prerequisite for any student who wishes to pursue his career in the field of business administration is the completion of at least one year of an undergraduate degree from an accredited business school. This is usually followed by four years of graduate studies at an accredited institution of higher education or a business administration university. Those wishing to specialize in human resources management will require at least one year of graduate studies at a university specializing in human resources management. A degree in finance is also a necessity as well as a license to work in financial institutions. A degree in economics, marketing or business administration will not be much help as these subjects are not studied in Nigeria.
