In accordance with Universitas Brawijaya’s vision and mission, delegation of students to take part in the national level competition that carries the name of Universitas Brawijaya in general and the Accounting Department of the Faculty of Economics and Business in particular, is one manifestation of scientific development that has only been obtained through classroom education. To add insight and enrich the knowledge that has been gained, students are advised to take part in competitions to improve the skills they have acquired.
Accounting Competence is a competition arena as a form of contribution to the development of accounting skills and knowledge. Therefore the next generation of accountants must have technical capabilities, such as mastering International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or IFRS-based Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (PSAK) so as to increase the competitiveness of Indonesian accounting students. IFRS is a standard that has been converged in the financial accounting standards of ASEAN countries.
Economics is a common and often encountered field in everyday life, and Accounting is one of the majors in lectures that affect the economy. From the accounting concepts that we often encounter in everyday life, the Student Association of the Accounting Study Program at the Faculty of Economics, Atma Jaya University held the Atma Jaya Yogyakarta Supreme Accounting Competition (ASAC) at the national level. With a series consisting of Technical Meetings, Provisions, Semifinals, Finals, National Seminars, and Gathering Night held on April 10 – April 13, 2019.
Atma Jaya Yogyakarta Supreme Accounting Competition (ASAC) is an accounting competition with a national scope. This competition was held as a forum in an effort to implement the knowledge gained during the lecture period. In addition to being a forum in the implementation of science, through ASAC it is expected that the ability level can be tested not only in concept but also in the technical capacity of all students throughout Indonesia.
The desire to develop and add insight is what inspired us to attend the Atma Jaya Yogyakarta Supreme Accounting Competition (ASAC) by sending a delegation who will later become the representative of Universitas Brawijaya in the race to be the best at the event.
