Abstract

This article details the impact on business schools' curricula as the Accounting profession expanded its core requirements for C.P.A.s. The authors point out obligations for professors teaching this material, including the fact that states may enact particularized laws, and therefore the content may reflect that there are distinct jurisdictional rules. Since business law issues are prominently featured on the C.P.A. exam, it behooves business schools to offer an in-depth curriculum of study for C.P.A. candidates.
