Abstract

There has been a growing gap between management accounting education and industries’ expectations in Nigeria. This paper seeks to identify the reasons for this gap and recommend how this gap could be closed or eliminated. Using random sampling research survey, it was found that there is a significant relationship between management accounting curricula and industries’ expectations of accounting graduates. Management accounting syllabi are changed to reflect the changes in the ever dynamic industrial needs. Unfortunately, however, it was also found that lecturers do not cover the planned curricula. The paper therefore recommended that Lecturers should be encouraged and assessed to ensure that they cover the planned syllabi.
