Every CPA follows a different path to reach his or her professional goals but have you ever looked back at your post-secondary education and wondered the following questions:
- Did my accounting courses properly prepare me for my day-to-day job?
- Did I learn the right skills to fulfill their future employer’s expectations?
- Can the successful completion of my career goals be attributed to the competencies I learned as an accounting student?
A study at the MacEwan School of Business (funded by the CPA Education Foundation) is seeking answers to these, and many more, questions regarding the kind of education received by future CPAs and whether it adequately prepares CPA hopefuls for the profession. Results of this study will help garner information regarding employers’ needs, students’ expectations, and the challenges of undergraduate accounting education.
