    Abstract

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to review the evidence regarding the link between accounting education and the industry, with particular emphasis on the links between accounting education and firm performance. In particular, the paper investigates corporate governance education and its relation to firms' performance, to improve the content of business-related programs at Frederick University. Design/methodology approach - Survey analysis, action research and literature review are used in order to apply the findings of corporate governance research on course programmes at the university. Findings - The main recommendation of the research is that new modules have to be introduced for both the accounting and finance and business administration degrees so as to meet the increasing need for corporate governance education. This is reflected in the interviews of managers, the student questionnaires, the faculty interviews and the literature review on the subject. These new modules will serve the increasing needs of the Cyprus business world towards better corporate governance practices. These modules should cover the main theoretical aspects concerning corporate governance and the empirical findings concerning corporate governance education and its relation with performance. Originality/value - The paper provides new insights as to how corporate governance research could be applied to business-related degree courses at a university in Cyprus.
