OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT

The overall objective of the project is address a gap in Higher Education by creating an internationally-oriented learning platform in accountancy that facilitates current essential hard and soft skill development for early career professionals.

Graduates planning to work in specialist areas of accountancy require specific competencies. They must develop sound subject-specialist knowledge, professional skills, and professional values, ethics and attitudes during their studies. Such competence cannot be acquired through a didactic concept which involves only traditional lectures, seminars and modes of assessment.

We aim to develop a teaching concept that facilitates the development of all competencies to meet the current and future demands in the profession and significantly enhance the employability of engaged students. The technological changes in the profession require graduates to be more digitally competent, commercially and internationally aware, analytical and resilient.  The teaching concept will take the changing environment into account. Working as an accountancy professional requires interdisciplinary thinking and problem solving skills, as well as understanding accountancy in different cultures and legislations.
