The CA/WLU Centre for Accounting Research and Education has been established to promote excellence in research and teaching, and to encourage knowledge development in accounting education and practice. Our vision is to enhance the scholarly activities of accounting related faculty and to foster the development of the highest quality accounting graduates.

The Centre’s mission is to support the scholarly activities and research efforts of WLU accounting related faculty and to build upon our record of producing highly successful graduates.  This will be achieved by facilitating access of WLU accounting related faculty to research opportunities and outlets, by encouraging students to assist faculty in knowledge development and by promoting the enhancement of WLU accounting programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Centre will also support curriculum development projects to help ensure that the WLU accounting curriculum evolves to reflect the changing education requirements as set out in publications such as the CA Candidates’ Competency Map.
