These choices are usually influenced by various factors, which can either be psychological, economical, social, or environmental. This study empirically examined the career and sectoral preferences of final year accounting students in Nigeria. The predisposing fadors influencing these choices were also highlighted. Questionnaires were administered to a sample of 488 respondents drawn from tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
