Abstract

The purpose of our study is to evaluate the universities which are looking to comply their educational curriculum with the benckmark one: IFAC's accounting educational matrix. Another purpose is to see if Bologna process followed by European Universities is fitting international accepted requests. The paper has found that there is a significant preoccupation between the Romanian universities regarding the conformity with IFAC educational matrix, but there are still steps to be made in order to obtain the conformity with this one. Also Bologna educational process: 3 2 system, is not allowing the universities to follow a normal process of education, many of the disciplines are promoted as optional which means that they are not necessary followed by the future accountants.
