International accountancy and education leaders will meet on 8 March 2011 at the United Nations in Geneva for the Accountancy Education Forum, a full-day event jointly hosted by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB).

The Accountancy Education Forum will feature speakers and participants from North and South America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. The agenda includes panel discussions and interactive sessions that aim to share best practices, provide support tools, and answer questions, with a focus on the implementation of the International Education Standards set by the IAESB, and the UNCTAD-ISAR Accounting Model Curriculum.
