Abstract

This paper explores the changing environment of accounting education over the last fifteen years and describes a program of study developed in response to those changes. The program seeks to bridge the gap between academic study in accounting and a career in professional practice, aiming to deliver work-ready graduates who will assist in meeting the needs of employers and help alleviate the skill shortage in the Australian accounting profession.
