Since then, 1% of the budget for faculty personnel expense has been decreased every year. 1% looks small number but 15 years make accumulated decrease of budget became 15% in total. It has become a huge amount. When a national university would like to start a new program, we have to ask the budget for the program to the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Finance because university budget has no allowance for a new program. IGSAP got the budget in 2015 but it has a tenure of 6 years. Tohoku University is one of the largest national universities in Japan but without a supporting fund, it can't afford to continue the project like IGSAP...Read More

Accounting research has changed in 1980s dramatically called 'Accounting Revolution'. Empirical methodology of econometrics using statistics were introduced to accounting research. From 1980s till now, this has been a main stream of accounting research. On the other hand, one of the important roles of university professors in accountancy is to contribute to the practice. This mission have been forgotten since 1980s. The 1st objective of our paper is to change this condition. We started International Business Alliance Corporation; having seminars and events related to accounting, information technology and business communication. IBA's activities have been supported by National Chung Cheng University and very successful.

IBA's activities are now focusing on the exchange between Japan and Taiwan, Bangladesh, Vietnam. We will extend the programs to Asian and African countries. These are possible because of IGSAP's international academic exchange. One of the authors visited over 30 countries and was responsible for having academic exchanges and MOUs of double degree programs.

Academic research in accounting is not limited to empirical study but can be developed to a type of engineering research. Engineering research means making something useful to society or practice. IBA is now engaged in making useful systems; SMEs accounting, business communication, cybersecurity, new business (food, culture, IOT, etc.).
