The study sought to determine the factors which influence the Accountancy students in the higher year levels in continuing with their course and to provide intervention where necessary. It used the descriptive survey method of research. Results revealed that the respondents’ main reasons for pursuing Accountancy are the existence of an industry demand and of job opportunities in the Philippines for Certified Public Accountants. They denied being influenced by their parents, peers, relatives and teachers in their decision. Furthermore, they claim that it is their personal choice and their family’s financial status that made them decide on their choice of course.
