In conversation with Dr. Syed Zaidi: What can you do with a degree in accounting?

In this YouTube episode, we invited Dr. Syed Zaidi to talk about a career in accounting, pursuing a Ph.D. and jobs in accounting.

Dr. Zaidi is Interim Associate Dean in the College of Business, Department Chair, Accounting and Business Law, and an Associate Professor of Accounting at Louisiana State University Shreveport. He is also a Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ZeeAcc.

Dr. Zaidi's expertise is in Cost and Managerial Accounting. During his teaching career, he has taught numerous courses including Managerial Accounting, Intermediate Accounting II, Cost Accounting, Cost Management/Advanced Cost, Foundations of Accounting, International Accounting, and Financial Accounting.

In this conversation that is geared toward students wanting to work in accounting, he answers three questions:

  • What are the different career paths within accounting, and what did you choose?

  • What advice would you give a student who is considering accounting as a career?

  • What does this career offer that students should be aware of?
