Open Access Honors Program Thesis
The accounting profession's desire to enhance entry-level communication skills is evident in a revised Certified Public Accountant examination (CP A exam) and a continued push for a revamped accounting curriculum. This paper will describe the need for effective communication skills in the accounting profession and the efforts of accounting educators and CP A exam designers to improve the communication skills of accountants entering the field. I discuss the possibilities that revised curricula and examination practices could improve the overall abilities of future CP A candidates. However, I argue that the accounting industry must identify itself as a profession of communication to solve the overarching communication problems.
