HASSALL, T., JOYCE, J., ARQUERO MONTANO, J. L. and DONOSO ANES, J. A. (2005). Priorities for the development of vocational skills in management accountants: A European perspective. Accounting forum, 29 (4), 379-394.Full text not available from this repository.
In recent years there have been many calls for a re-orientation of accounting education in order to include the development of competencies such as communication, group working, and problem solving skills. However, concern has been expressed that the proposed changes are possibly biased towards the interests of public accounting employers. This paper presents and compares the opinions of the employers of management accountants in Spain and the UK, and then by using a weighted importance indicator determines vocational skills development priorities. The factors that the Spanish and UK employers identified as major constraints to the development of vocational skills are also compared.
