Abstract

This paper is an attempt to explore the relevance and usefulness of accounting education to development needs of LDCs; and to make constructive suggestions for educational change in any areas where relevance or usefulness seem to be very seriously deficient Identification of development needs is discussed first, then the present character of accounting education as exported to LDCs is discussed in the context of development needs. Finally strategic proposals are made to close the largest gaps between development need and the supply of accounting education.
