Introduction to the Repository of International Accounting Syllabi (Dated July 2020)

The Repository of Accounting Syllabi emerged during the 2019-2020 academic year and was created to foster collaboration and sharing of teaching ideas and materials across the members of the International Accounting Section of the American Accounting Association. Co-chairs of the IAS Curriculum Committee 2019-2020, Asheq Rahman (Auckland University and Technology) and Laura Swenson (University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee), obtained the syllabi using two primary means of collection. The first was through a call for syllabi that was posted in the IAS section news sent to IAS section members via e-mail. The second (which is still ongoing) was via direct solicitation of department chairs. In order to complete the latter, a list of AACSB accredited accounting programs in the United States was gathered as well as available department chair e-mails. The authors also reached out to personal contacts. We thank those that have contributed and ask that any others interested in contributing to the repository of syllabi contact Asheq Rahman ( or Laura Swenson (


President's Letter

Dear Current, and Future, Members of the International Accounting Section,

I will focus the majority of this letter on professional matters related to the section. However, I want to first send condolences, on behalf of the International Accounting Section, to all who have suffered personal loss during the last year and a half. The generosity of our members, the donation of their service and energy to the section, and the efforts to support each other provides the foundation of our section. Losses to any of the members of the Section are losses to us all. However, as we continue through these difficult times, I am confident that foundation will provide the Section the strength to support its members and to provide valuable resources and opportunities for Section members to advance their research, teaching and practice activities.Continue Reading


Journal of International Accounting

The Journal of International Accounting Research publishes articles that increase our understanding of the development and use of international accounting and reporting practices or attempt to improve extant practices. International accounting is broadly interpreted to include the reporting of international economic transactions; the study of differences among practices across countries; the study of interesting institutional and cultural factors that shape practices in a single country but have international implications; and the effect of international accounting practices on users. The Journal has a diverse readership and is interested in articles in auditing, financial accounting, managerial accounting, systems, tax, and other specialties within the field of accounting.
