ABSTRACT

One of the important factors shaping accounting education is the business world. Structuring of accounting education according to the expectations of the business world which will employ the graduates is an important issue and it is especially necessary in our country. Every year, significant numbers of expenditures are provided for education in Azerbaijan. In order to get even more efficiency from these expenditures, education system should be developed, updated and renewed. Developed countries meet the need for labor force by the business world with vocational training methods which are formed according to businesses’ internal dynamics, by taking advantage of international experiences. Countries that implement their education based on university-business cooperation are only those who apply school-based education, and countries that adopt both approaches but are constantly in pursuit of achieving this goal through three different methods. (It needs to indicate the methods) The current education system in Azerbaijan is based on theoretical approach. Due to the expectations of the business world and the importance of modern accounting education, the specialization level of the graduates is expected to be brought to the standards of the business world who will employ them, by restructuring accounting education itself. In this study, we analyzed expectations of the business world from the accounting education in the Universities and Vocational Schools in Azerbaijan and determined main problems they face in this field. For this purpose, a research has been conducted on the expectations of the companies operating in Baku from teaching of accounting. In this research, general information about accounting and educational institutions, the structure of the current accounting training in universities, the perspective of the business world in accounting teaching and their expectations were analyzed.
