    The Development of Accounting Education (Bill Black)

    Bill Black (University of Mississippi - Ph.D. Student)

    As part of the full Committee’s document, the Human Capital Subcommittee of the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Advisory Committee on the Auditing Profession issued a report in the fall of 2008 which included a number of recommendations concerning possible future directions for the education of accountants and auditors. The Committee recommended that the American Institute of CPAs and the American Accounting Association jointly form a body to provide a timely study of the possible future of the higher education structure for the accounting profession.  This project is a direct consequence of that recommendation, and is provided to assist in the deliberations which will enable such a body to act effectively and be informed as to important literature relevant to the topics which would be of importance to the study.
