This research aims to explore factors differentiating career selection among accounting students in selecting their future career. The subjects of this research were 200 accounting students from several public and private universities in Indonesia. Semi-opened ended questionnaires with five Likert scales ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) was used in this study. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the characteristics of variables and MANOVA was employed to test research hypothesis. The results of this research show that student career selection significantly varies among financial rewards, professional recognitions, work environments and labor market consideration. Vice versa, only professional training and social values do not affect students in selecting their future career. Findings are discussed and recommendations are provided to policy holders and further researchers.
