Abstract
Compared to other ASEAN countries, Indonesia has the most significant number of accounting students and accounting graduates. However, this number is not in line with the number of professional accountants. Indonesia is in number five below Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines. The purpose of this study is to investigate the awareness of accounting students about the various professional accountant certification. Through our survey, we find that Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is the most popular certification among others. The finding of this study gives valuable information for the university as well as professional organizations to formulate strategies to attract future’s professional accountant.
