Claims that few studies have examined student expectations regarding public accounting. Suggests that this is surprising since previous research suggests that unmet employee expectations may result in negative consequences for organizations. Aims to extend previous research by examining student expectations regarding very specific duties and responsibilities in public accounting. The questionnaire was completed by 129 upper‐division accounting students. Finds that a surprising number of students exhibit unrealistic expectations. Discusses practical implications for accounting educators.
