The populations selected in this study are accounting students at Brawijaya University of 2007 who were or have been through the audit laboratory. The data in this study was obtained through questionnaires. Research variables were measured with the approach of personal consideration such as motivation, family background, economic condition and salary consideration. This research was conducted using multiple linear regression analysis as an analytical model. By using multiple linear regressions to find out the factors that influence undergraduate accounting students in choosing post graduation step the result shows that motivation and family background are more dominant factors than economic condition and salary consideration. The higher motivation (career, quality and economic), the greater desire for someone to follow Accounting Professional Education Program (PPAK). The higher parent’s education degree and the best atmosphere at home, influence toward their children as undergraduate students to achieve higher academic quality. In the other side, research findings indicate that economic condition and salary consideration have no significance influence to the post graduation step. The hypothesis was rejected because the condition of economic condition does not possess influence toward post graduation step. Salary consideration has no influence to post graduation step because student realize that there is another factor, which is more important than salary in choosing post graduation step such as experience.
