Accounting has a relationship with the condition of the environment nowadays. As now environmental issues have been gained so much attention from the public, the growing awareness and pressure by community, customers, and stakeholders have forced the organization to accept the introduction of environmental protection measures into their organization. Therefore, this relationship will determine the sustainability of an organization. However, the lack of attention and knowledge about the relationship between accounting and the environment itself still happens in many organizations. In response to this, the Accounting Club and President University Major Association of Accounting held an event called “President University Accounting Days” on 29 October 2019 – 1 November 2019 at Charles Himawan Auditorium President University.
President University Accounting Days 2019 (PUAD 2019) consisted of three sub-event, which are National Seminar, Accounting Internal Competition (ACTION), and Senior High School Competition (SHC). The overall PUAD 2019 brought a theme “Enhance Your Insight, Passion, and Spirit as Future Accountant”.

Next, the competition for accounting students at President University was also held. Accounting Internal Competition (ACTION) allowed accounting students especially from batch 2018 and 2019 to broaden their knowledge about the real practices of accounting which can improve their capability and skills of the accounting profession.
