Abstract

The Accounting Department of the Faculty of Economics of Universitas Negeri Medan (UNIMED) has the major objective to establish a high-quality accounting education process to produce graduates with accounting expertise competencies relevant to the user community's needs. Nowadays, accounting graduates must also hold a professional certificate related to accounting before entering the workforce. One of the best ways to achieve competency relevance is to provide material that fits the relevant exams managed by the Accounting professional certification bodies. We conducted qualitative research to design standardization of course material in UNIMEDs Accounting Department involving focus group discussions with peer lecturers and representatives from the users: industries and the Accounting Professional Body. We also run a thorough literature review and benchmark with other accounting departments in several top universities in Indonesia. Aside from the updated course material outlines, the significant results of this research is the proposal for the Accounting Department curriculum.
