Abstract

The prime objective of this paper is to indicate the main Accounting educatio~ in the 2 I'1 century. It e.;r:amines the case for the relevant degree and illustrates the argwilents with a few examples. The case for the relevant degree is quite simple. It is that exercise of professional judgement that should be effective as possible, being made in the light of all relevant knowledge. It should notbe based on unjustifiable ad hoc arbitrary rules, or on personal whims. In essence, the main business of University is thinking an'¢ teaching people to think; the main business of any practitioner is implementation. It iFthe view of this paper that both academic and praCtitioner each have substantial but separate contribution to make to the education of effective accountants in the scheme of development in Nigeria. ln contrary to this, th.e accounting academics should ensure that the relevance of this work is clearly apparent
