AICPA Launches New Education Resource

The Accounting Education Center at www.aicpa.org, provides users with education and curriculum development programs, student recruiting resources, scholarship and award information and a variety of publications, reports and other studies.

Information on the site is divided into five categories:

  • Education and Curriculum Development
  • Career Awareness
  • Scholarships and Awards
  • Publications, Reports and Studies
  • Minority Initiatives

Within the Education and Curriculum Development section, users will find the Educational Competency Assessment (ECA) web site which also includes the Core Competency Framework and database, information student and faculty development programs, and classroom and curriculum materials.

The Accounting Education Center is part of the AICPA’s Member Enhancement Project, in which the AICPA is committed to enhancing the benefits members receive in “special interest” programs. These special interest programs allow members to join with other CPAs who share a common interest in a particular area, from audit quality and tax to business valuation, financial management and education. The Accounting Education Center is the seventh center to be launched. Eleven centers in total will be created and launched over 18 months.
