Accounting Education Resources
The International Education Standards address the principles for professional accountants' learning and development and play an important global role in developing professional competence, improving the quality of professional accountancy education, and building effective professional accountancy organizations.
In addition to the IES, the IAESB developed implementation support materials, including videos, webcasts and presentations, and guidance documents. These resources support accounting education and provide assistance to academics, training providers, professional accounting organizations and employers.
