Abstract
As accounting education has been criticised for not training accountants to meet the changing demands of the globalised markets, this paper assesses the sufficiency of the proficiencies and skills and values taught to accounting students at Kazakhstan Institute of Management Economics and Strategic Research (KIMEP). In this paper, we report the findings of the study on communication skills, information development and distribution skills, decision-making skills, knowledge of financial accounting, knowledge of management accounting, knowledge of auditing, knowledge of taxation, knowledge of business environment, professional ethics, professionalism and leadership development. Generally, KIMEP accounting graduates are equipped with competency skills. However, there are certain skills that need to be further enhanced in the area of accountancy. The findings and the conclusions in this paper could provide empirical evidence and the input for evaluating the content of accounting programme to develop the required competency skills required for accountants.
