Title

Developmental review program impact on enhancing the effectiveness of "Teaching and Learning" in accounting program: a case study in a Saudi University


Abstract

Liberalization and globalization has opened up new and compelling challenges in the higher education section. Quality is invariably one of the factors that help educational institutions to remain relevant and thrive in the current highly competitive scenario, Quality in higher education is, as such, a hot topic and there is no paucity of literature in this regards. However, a fair review of the literature showed that there is scant literature about the impact of developmental review for enhancing of effectiveness of accounting program. The present work has attempted to bridge this gap in literature. The study has focused on Standard four – "Education and Learning" in the accounting program of a university in Saudi Arabia. The results of the study showed that there is profound positive impact of the developmental review towards the implementation of the requirements of standard four in the program. A few suggestions based on the study are also presented.
