ABSTRACT
The article discusses a gap between how accounting is taught in colleges and universities, and how it is practiced in the corporate world. With information technology able to automate many of accounting's more mundane tasks, the profession's focus has shifted from data collection and reporting to strategic decision-making. James Schwartz of Golden Gate University believes that accounting students need strong analytical and communications skills. He also asserts that continuing professional education will be necessary for those in the field. INSET: Sampling of Online Accounting Programs.
