Abstract

The recent growing accounting education reforms in global and Australian higher education institutions have opened new accounting education avenues. The current research aims to explore forensic accounting teaching aspects within the educational programs offered by Australian universities. Thus, the key research question is whether forensic accounting education within Australian universities meets forensic accounting real job requirements. The data was collected by examining Australian universities' websites. The analysis procedures are quantitative content analysis and qualitative thematic analysis. The empirical results show that most forensic accounting courses in Australian higher education attempt to link students with real work by using appropriate teaching pedagogies and exposing them to specific competencies. As a response to the scholarly calls for contributions to the advancement of empirical research in this field, this study explores forensic accounting teaching aspects in Australia. This study endeavours to make several key contributions to the literature on forensic accounting teaching.
