Global Accountancy Education: Preparing Future-Ready Accountants

IFAC | July 2, 2019 |

 To assist professional accountancy organizations (PAOs) and other key stakeholders to prepare future-ready professional accountants, IFAC is establishing a comprehensive, integrated approach to respond to accountancy education challenges and opportunities posed by a rapidly changing environment.

Accountancy education is a strategic priority for IFAC. Consequently, it is important that the future approach is designed to optimize the achievement of IFAC’s objectives in an agile, effective, and efficient way; and that key stakeholders understand, buy in, and commit to this approach. To assist key stakeholders, the IFAC team has developed an explanatory video.

To raise awareness of the International Education Standards (IES) and IFAC’s approach to advancing accountancy education, we encourage you to distribute this video to key stakeholders in your jurisdiction with a request to provide their contact information to Alta Prinsloo at for inclusion in the database of key accountancy education stakeholders.

Also available with French, Russian, Bosnia & Arabic subtitles.
