As adoption of international financial reporting standards moves to the fast track, finance executives appear conflicted, a recent U.S./European survey indicated. The majority of 749 international corporate finance professionals interviewed by Duke and Oxford universities favor a shift from generally accepted accounting practices (GAAP) to international financial reporting standards (IFRS).
