I am increasingly convinced that accounting and finance professionals, and by extension accounting and finance higher education programs, need stronger grounding in econometrics (for purposes here we'll define that as statistics and modeling within an economic context). How is it someone can earn a degree in accounting and have only the most basic of statistics covered within their program? If this is necessary, and I look forward to hearing contrary perspectives, where can we best work in stronger statistics and economic modeling within our programs of study?
