Accounting education is given at multiple levels of education from high school to associate degrees, undergraduate studies and graduate studies. Graduate studies are usually geared towards academicians or future academicians. For this reason, content, similarities and differences become prominent. Because, ensuring a similar program for the education provided both domestically and internationally would become important in terms of using the same language. To this end, experience and skills required for the vocation were established with various regulations of the American Accounting Association (AAA), International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and the European Union. This study aims to look into existence, programs, characteristics, ECTS and AKTS statuses of the accounting courses provided for Business Management graduate programs in Turkey. This study also attempts to highlight the importance and necessity of accreditations. Main subject of examination of the study is the institutes of social sciences of the state and foundation (private) universities listed on the Turkish Institute of Higher Education (YÖK) website. For the assessments, syllabi of the accounting courses and other courses related to accounting provided in business management, accounting, accounting and financing, and accounting auditing graduate programs under the social sciences institutes of the universities were examined and these courses were evaluated. © The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology.
