Akono discusses certified public accountant shortage with Times Record

Henri Akono, associate professor of accounting at Maine Business School, spoke with the Times Record about the shortage of certified public accountants in Maine. Akono said improving job prospects in corporate accounting and other business fields have contributed to the shortage, among other factors. “In prior days, everybody would go into public accounting,” he said. “It was a no-brainer. In today’s world, people don’t operate this way.”
