Accounting education can be considered as experience, as practice in learning to learn, and as part of education for business. Accounting techniques are important as parts of a data-processing apparatus, providing deeply significant data regarding enterprise prior experience. The objective of accounting is to provide insight into the results of management decisions. The aim of accounting education is to help students learn to learn to become professional accountants. The teacher should often mix theory with practice (the why and the how), and often indicate the contact of the course with non-accounting courses.
