Abstract

The deficiencies of university accounting programs have been identified by researchers for a long time. More recently, International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) states in its Strategic and Operational Plan, 2007-2009 that the development and enhancement of accounting education can largely help strengthen the accounting profession. This study investigates whether Australian universities produce accounting graduates with market expected knowledge, skills and competencies. It provides evidence that the existing university accounting programs are not exactly in line with the market expectations due to some inconsistencies of program structure, insufficient skills development and specialization.
