African American Accounting Majors and the 150-hr Requirement
Booker, Quinton; Hill, Cecil L.; Wright, Carl
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n2 p85-94 2010
The study provides information on African American accounting majors' views regarding 150-hr issues. The authors collected data from 152 students at two schools. Students at one school supported the requirement while those at the other school did not. However, students believed that the 150-hr requirement enhances the quality of certified public accountants (CPAs) and results in better prepared CPA candidates. On the other hand, many students were concerned with the opportunity cost associated with securing additional hours. Students were most interested in additional undergraduate courses in accounting and business, preferably offered via a double major or minor, to meet the requirement. Students rated the Master's in Accountancy as the preferred graduate degree. (Contains 7 tables and 10 notes.)
