How Much Does Accreditation Matter?

Savvy Community: How Much Does Accreditation Matter?

This question comes from member Taylor350 in the Ask Savvy group.

I am currently pursuing an accounting degree from an internationally accredited program at my university, however, the passion I once had for it in my primary accounting classes is long gone now. I was thinking about pursuing a degree in healthcare management instead, but the program is not accredited. Is it a big deal for the program not to be accredited, and could I still be accepted to a masters program elsewhere that is accredited? I just want to make sure I'm not wasting my time before I change majors!
