Education


The AICPA launched the Accounting Education Center ( www.aicpa.org/aec ), a Web site that provides educators with resources to enhance accounting and business curricula and to recruit and prepare students for entering the profession. The AICPA Core Competency Framework and Educational Competency Assessment Web site are among those offerings. The center also provides information on scholarships, awards, work-life effectiveness and the professional advancement of women and minority-group members. Other resources include access to an online discussion forum for accounting educators and links to information on professional conferences, accounting and auditing literature, reports and studies as well as membership in the Institute.
