Mind the Gap: Accounting Information Systems Curricula Development in Compliance with IFAC Standards in a Developing Country
Aleqab, Mahmoud Mohmad Ahmad; Nurunnabi, Mohammad; Adel, Dalia
Journal of Education for Business, v90 n7 p349-358 2015
The authors examine the consistency between the current practices in designing and teaching accounting information systems (AIS) curricula and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) requirements for International Education Practice Statement 2 and International Education Standards 2. Utilizing a survey and interviews data in Jordan, the results show several issues that contribute to the inconsistency of IFAC's requirements, including a lack of Arabic textbooks, qualified staff, training, computer laboratories, and faculty support and finance. This is the first study to provide a model curriculum and course learning outcomes of an AIS course. There is urgent attention required from local and international policymakers.
