About the Centre

Thought leadership at the intersection of accounting practice and accounting policy.

The CPA-Ivey Centre for Accounting and the Public Interest promotes accounting research and teaching at the Ivey Business School, supporting the School’s Managerial Accounting and Control faculty and providing a new forum for innovative thinking and thought leadership concerning public interest issues. The Centre fosters the development of breakthrough research and contributes to the leading accounting and management journals of today.

Under the guidance of the Advisory Board, the Centre enhances Ivey’s reputation as one of the top business schools in the world.

With gracious financial support from CPA Ontario, the Centre continues to grow and move forward.

Mission: Strengthening the research and teaching capabilities at Ivey

The CPA-Ivey Centre for Accounting and the Public Interest began as a way to promote accounting research and teaching relevant to management, thereby enhancing the link between the accounting profession and management pedagogy. The Centre will strengthen the research and teaching capabilities of the Managerial Accounting and Control faculty at the Ivey Business School.

The Centre arises from a desire of CPA Ontario (formerly the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario) to provide financial support to Ontario business schools, and in particular accounting departments, that generate qualified students that write the Common Final Examination (CFE) in pursuit of the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.
