I've seen articles online which elaborate on the perpetual value of a CPA and the bright future ahead for students studying accounting. At the same time, I have seen articles written about the changes in the industry and the uncertainty present in the industry(whether that be a result of technology or outdated practices as described in this article--http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-end-of-accounting-...). Is there any truth in the latter statement with regards to a career in audit or corporate accounting? I would assume that accountants will still be needed for the long run but just their roles and practices might shift with changing times.
