Accountancy Futures

Research and experience is telling us that firms are increasingly looking at the internship model to complement their current graduate recruitment strategies. This research study was funded by ACCA Ireland and the overall aim was to gain a deeper understanding of the benefits and challenges of internship programmes for recruiting accountancy graduates. This study explored the relevant literature on cooperative accounting education and the benefits from a stakeholder perspective, namely the student, the firm and the accountancy body. A large scale survey of both employers and student/practitioners across Ireland (North and South) was carried out. The findings informed the development of a guide to responsible internships to be developed in conjunction with ACCA.
