    Organizations certifying accountants, such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), play an important role in strengthening their professional status. Being accredited by them has recently become the goal of many institutions which offer accounting programs. Our paper aims to investigate the impact of ACCA accreditation on the accounting education in Poland, as well as to identify the important aspects of the collaboration between ACCA and accounting educators. The findings are based on a survey conducted among 50 faculty members from seven Polish universities.

The ACCA engagement in collaboration with universities consists mostly in promotion of the accredited programs. Despite some limitation the study provides new insights into the problem of accounting education in the accreditation processes context

The aim of the article is to present the methods and tools of management accounting used for the measurement of costs and results in SCM. For this purpose, a survey was conducted among 40 selected enterprises in Poland. The findings indicate that on the one hand the studied organizations already use advanced management accounting tools and the methods providing information for SCM needs, on the other hand, they rarely apply them. This approach does not contribute to effective and holistic measurement of supply chain and its management
