Accounting Education in Hong Kong: Suggestions for Change
Andy Y. M. NG（吳奕敏）
The business world is becoming increasingly complex and is facing new and greater challenges in the 1990s. The accounting profession, a key profession in modern business society, will have to meet these challenges. Given the fluidity of events, the accounting education programme needs to provide new skills and knowledge to accounting graduates who enter the profession. This paper, in a survey of practitioners and accounting executives in Hong Kong, explores how accounting education can be improved to effectively train professionals to meet the challenges in the 1990s. The survey findings may help to shed some light on how to bridge the expectation gap between the accounting professionals in the business world and accounting academics on the adequacy of current accounting education programmes.
