Societal Factors Affecting Communication and Cooperation Between Industry and Accounting Education at Castleton State College.
O'Neil, Bryan L.
The purpose of the practicum was to determine the societal factors existing in the accounting industry and accounting education, with the aim of integrating the changing regulations and environment of the industry into the classroom at Castleton State College (Vermont). A group of certified public accountants were surveyed by Likert scale to learn of societal factors in the profession and its training. Priorities for industry-education coordination were: cooperative education, joint industry-college committee, workshop, adjustment faculty members, advisory committee, guest lecturer, site visits, personnel exchange programs, and a joint governmental-college committee. Goals and objectives for a workshop were established for discussion of industry and education groups. The principal recommendation of the practicum is an industry-college workshop to further discuss these issues. (MSE)
