Abstract

The toplc of five-year accounting programs has received much discussion over the past decade. Recent reports issued by groups investigating different aspects of the accounting profession have brought five-year accounting programs back into the spotlight. This article discusses the need to provide accounting graduates with an enhanced level of technical and ethical training. A model five-year program is presented and contrasted with the current AACSB guidelines for masters programs. This program is offered not as a definite solution but in the hope of generating further discussion on this topic.
