Abstract

In this chapter, as in the rest of the book in which this chapter form a part, the logic of teaching using the liberal arts is described and contrasted with the practical vocational training approach of teaching which has formed the foundation of accountancy courses for many years. The chapters proposes to change the established practice by integrating the liberal arts into the university accounting curriculum. Comments and counter-arguments are then discussed before the chapter uses two illustrations supplied by the authors of how the proposed change may be achieved by the inclusion of ethics and sustainability within the accounting curriculum.
