How are education pathways for entry into the accounting profession changing? How are globalisation and new technologies, along with new social and environmental issues, impacting these pathways? And, what can our next generation of graduate entrants expect as accounting roles become increasingly varied and diverse?
Each chapter provides fresh insights from professional accounting bodies, practitioners and accounting academics as they openly explore and debate the changing role, education pathways and future needs of professional accountants in an Australian context. Of note, the recurring issue of quality and strategies for upholding the highest standards in accounting education is a shared priority among all contributors.
