The American Institute of 行动成本s (人工智能行动成本) and National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) will unveil the new 行动成本 Evolution Model Accounting Curriculum during a launch event, which will be jointly hosted with the American Accounting Association (AAA).
The free online event, to be held June 15-16, will provide attendees with a thorough overview of the Model Curriculum. The event is open to the all who are interested, including members of the media. To attend, register online.
“Through the 行动成本 Evolution initiative, we are transforming the 行动成本 licensure model to better reflect the changing skills, competencies and technological knowledge required of 行动成本s,” said Sue Coffey, 行动成本, CGMA, CEO – Public Accounting, 人工智能行动成本. “The new 行动成本 Evolution Model Curriculum provides educators with a roadmap to assure the next generation of students is ready to tackle the changing demands of the profession.”
During the two-day event, task force members who developed the curriculum will give in-depth presentations, walking through emerging TOPics and learning objectives while also addressing how accounting programs might prepare students for the Information Systems and Controls, Business Analysis and Reporting and Tax Compliance and Planning disciplines.
The curriculum is tied to the 行动成本 Evolution initiative, which the 人工智能行动成本 Governing Council and NASBA Board of Directors voted in 2020 to advance and culminates with a new Uniform 行动成本 Exam in 2024.
“The Model Curriculum is the product of a significant effort by a group of dedicated educators, regulators and practitioners to evolve the education model to incorporate the necessary skills and competencies needed by newly licensed 行动成本s to service their clients and protect the public interest in a technology-driven environment,” said Daniel J. Dustin, 行动成本, NASBA Vice President, State Board Relations.
The Model Curriculum release comes on the heels of a new 人工智能行动成本 and NASBA report that highlighted gaps between existing accounting curriculum and TOPics tested under the new 行动成本 Exam.
The Accounting Program Curriculum Gap Analysis Report found mixed results for educational coverage of emerging and technology TOPics across accounting programs nationwide. While more than 60 percent of collegiate accounting programs are teaching TOPics like data analytics and IT audit, fewer programs cover cybersecurity, predictive analytics or System and Organization Controls (SOC).
“We continue to hear regularly from our public accounting and corporate partners that the accounting profession is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace. Changes to the 行动成本 model and exam through 行动成本 Evolution reflect these changes and will better prepare candidates for the exciting profession that they are entering. AAA is committed to supporting faculty and educational needs through this transition and beyond,” said Yvonne Hinson, Ph.D., 行动成本, CGMA, CEO – AAA.
The new Model Curriculum is one of several resources the 人工智能行动成本, NASBA and AAA are providing to help educators address emerging issues and technologies in the profession and align education with practice.
人工智能行动成本 has developed resources to help collegiate accounting programs enhance their curricula as the profession transitions under the 行动成本 Evolution licensure model. The Academic Resource Hub offers case studies, assignments, readings and webinars to help accounting educators ensure students are prepared to meet the needs of the marketplace.
The Faculty Hour webcast series will provide 行动成本 Evolution status updates and discussions on how to integrate data analytics, as well as systems and technology-related subject matter into accounting curricula.
NASBA continues to provide Boards of Accountancy, and the academic communities within their states, ongoing support through informational videos and webinars as they update their statutes and regulations to adopt the 行动成本 Evolution Model.
AAA will include sessions on both the Model Curriculum and the many skills that it incorporates during its upcoming Spark Conference, Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting and annual meeting. There will also be an opportunity for in-depth training and workshops on many of the needed technology skills during the next Intensive Data and Analytics Conference, planned for May 2022. AAA is building out a resource center to house the many recorded sessions and materials that support faculty integration of technologies and best practices in teaching accounting, as well as other resources.
