Meily Surianti


This study aims to develop an accounting curriculum with the Industry 4.0 approach. The specific target expected from this study is to produce curriculum designs that can be used as input in the revision of the curriculum in the Public Finance Accounting Program and the Accounting Study Program planned to be implemented in 2020. While the long-term target of the results of this study is the availability of a curriculum that can accommodate market needs , so that graduates of Accounting and Public Financial Accounting Study Programs have competitive competence and knowledge. Specific and long-term goals can be achieved by conducting deep interviews with several industrial and banking companies to identify the needs of the industrial world for accounting graduates. From the results of the study it was identified that there was a shift in the role of accountants, where this shift in role caused a shift in hardskill and soft skills that must be owned by an accountant. In addition, accommodating changes that occur can use two approaches, namely by inserting topics in existing subjects, or by creating new courses.
