Computer technology and accounting professionals' use of this technology have grown over the years. Not all universities have been able to keep abreast of these changes. Various studies have shown that a gap has grown between what students need to know for a career in accounting and what some professors are teaching concerning computer usage. Many accounting programs do not have the resources, both financial and nonfinancial, to prepare students for a career in accounting. This is a serious problem that is discussed in this paper. Paper also discusses possible solutions to the problem.
