Accounting education and business ethics after Enron: the European illusion
AbstractHave the lessons of the Enron case actually led to a radical transformation of the educational practices and content of accounting education in Europe? Nothing could be more uncertain. This paper studies the consequences of the Enron affair on accounting education in Europe. The Enron affair is widely used by teachers to attract the interest of accounting students, but educational methods used to teach accounting in European business schools have not fundamentally changed. Implementation of business ethics teaching aims to prove that business schools appreciate the importance of values and integrity in management. However, the real impact of these courses on the behaviour of future professionals remains unknown.
