IAESB targets technology for future

The International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) has identified areas of focus to help strengthen the accounting education curriculum and harness the latest technology in its effort.

At the United Nations Accountancy Education Forum conference, the IAESB discussed the topic of education with 30 leaders from the Professional Accountancy Organization (PAO).

Key points addressed were:

  • Updating the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development model accounting curriculum and the International Education Standards (IESs), to meet the challenges of delivering accountancy education in France speaking parts of Africa and other parts of the world,
  • Revising the suite of IESs to enable better understanding by PAOs of their obligations in the development of competent professional accountants,
  •  Developing additional guidance on the implementation of the IESs while facilitating their use as a set of global benchmarks for the development and delivery of professional accountancy education, and
  •  Exploring new opportunities for harnessing the latest technology and providing accountancy education programs in innovative ways. 

The IAESB is part of the International Federation of Accountants.
