Who We Are

International Panel on Accountancy Education

Established 2019

The International Panel on Accountancy Education is a key feature of IFAC’s approach to advancing accountancy education at the global level. The Panel is instrumental in advising IFAC on how to best assist professional accountancy organizations in preparing future-ready accountants.

Members of Panel have a threefold remit to:

  • Act as strategic advisors for IFAC’s accountancy education work plan;
  • Advocate for high-quality accountancy education globally and in their home jurisdictions and regions; and
  • Serve as access points for accountancy education resources

Panel members are nominated by IFAC members and Forum of Firm members and represent key stakeholders across the profession, including professional accountancy organizations, accountants in practice and business, and academics. This diversity allows the panel to explore current trends’ impacts to professional accountants’ education and development through many lenses.

Members serve a three-year term and can be re-nominated for a second term for a maximum of six years.
