Accounting Practitioners Reflect on Faculty Impact: Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice
Johnson, Ryan
American Journal of Business Education, v7 n2 p109-114 2014
A gap exists between the perception of accounting education in the classroom and accounting as it is practiced. This study explores qualitatively the perceptions and experiences of mid-career accounting professionals with respect to the impact of academic faculty on their careers in accounting. The study identifies a perception gap in the experiences of accounting practitioners and explores the reasons for and significance of this gap. The study also explores the ways in which faculty members can positively impact practitioners, such as providing a smooth entry point into the profession, as well as provides a roadmap for greater articulation between the accounting education and accounting practice.
