The AICPA & CIMA have begun accepting nominations for their EDGE in Teaching Awards and Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Awards.
Both awards will go to accounting educators at the college level for outstanding achievements in the field, as well as contribution to shaping the best new talent for the profession.
