    The purpose of this study is to investigate whether and to what extent accounting education and research fit business needs. The study highlights differences between business needs and academic knowledge, including teaching and research in accounting. We used a structured questionnaire to reveal perceptions’ differences through cluster analysis, including a sample of students, teaching staff from Accounting and Finance Departments and employers. The results indicated that all these groups have different perceptions.
