The dynamic economic environment we encounter today is more financially driven rather than trade driven and due to this transformation, there are more significant concerns on higher education degree programs in accounting and finance. This study compares accounting and finance bachelor’s degree programs offered by Sri Lankan and Australian universities. 18 universities were selected from the two countries as the sample of this study. The comparison is first made at the national policy level and then at programs level by analysing related national frameworks and curriculums of related special/major bachelor’s degree programs. Consequently, similarities, differences, strengths and weaknesses of programs offered by two countries are identified as insights for further improvements.
