Recently, the tremendous growth of the Internet usage and electronic commerce as well as the mega price jumps of most "dot-com" shares in global stock markets are largely based on the expectation that the powerful integration of technology-driven and business-driven opportunities will continue to generate positive synergies in the new Millennium. CPA's should be able to grasp these opportunities and manage the associated risks through the effective integration of accounting. Current accounting education is challenged by major changes in the environment in which professional accountants are operating. Therefore, CPA bodies and communities have constantly stressed the need for a shift in CPA's education by increasing the knowledge of systems and Information Technology Knowledge, among others. Consequently, the purpose of this article is twofold: firstly, to research the extent of the changing environment in which CPA's will need to operate in future focusing specifically on information technology; and then, to determine the need for future research that will identify strategies for closing the gap between the current education of CPA's at universities and what will be expected from them in their profession in the near future.
