The rapid pace of the changing world of accounting requires new technical knowledge with each addition to the professional standards. The academic environment prepares graduates with a level of conceptual knowledge. Upon entering public accounting practice, firms must transition that knowledge of concepts into practical application for staff to develop quickly with the level of technical competency required by the professional standards.
