The Institute of Public Accountants is calling on its members to participate in a survey aimed at understanding the future of accounting professions and their educational needs.
The survey is part of FIPA Duncan Honore-Morris’ PhD paper with the University of Melbourne, who will be presenting the results at the World Congress of Sociology in Toronto in July 2018 and potentially at the World Congress of Accounting in Sydney in November 2018.
The aim of the survey is to assess the standards and scope of professional accounting practice, to establish if the accounting profession is getting stronger or weaker; and to use the information to assist the profession to clarify and/or redefine its strategic direction(s); and improve the education of professional accountants.
The survey will cover several countries including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, UK and the USA, with professional accountants from across the subdisciplines of accounting practice and the domains of professional practice invited to participate.
Respondents will remain anonymous, with participation in the study completely voluntary. The average time taken to complete the survey is 12 minutes.
