University teaching of accountancy in New Zealand is probably unique in that it has developed hand in hand with the educational requirements of the profession. Although this close relationship did much to stimulate accounting education in the early years this is not so now. In attempting to meet the requirements of the profession and develop independent programmes the universities have been forced into an uneasy compromise. Those United States institutions which have recently created Professional Schools of Accounting may well find themselves similarly placed in the near future.
