Overview of the IAESB 2017-2021 Strategy

Feb 15, 2017 | Videos

The International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) 2017-2021 Strategy and 2017-2018 Work Plan, approved by the Board at its November meeting, has now been approved by the Public Interest Oversight Board. The Strategy puts accounting education standards development at the center of the board’s work for the next five years, to ensure the accounting profession has the skills it needs to meet the ever-changing demands of business and the public sector.

In this video, Chris Austin, Chair of the IAESB, explains how the board's 2017-2021 Strategy increases public confidence in the accountancy profession, the board’s focus for the next five years, and the challenges the accountancy profession faces and how the strategy addresses them.
