Suzan Abed


The aim of this study was to investigate the level and content of e-business education provided in accounting study plan. Content analysis was performed for course outline for accounting application on computers and accounting information systems based on four dimensions: prerequisite, status, course description and topic coverage. An analysis of 21 syllabi of accounting application on computers and accounting information systems revealed that little attention has been provided to e-accounting education to undergraduate students. The results showed inconsistent content of course outline for the accounting application on computers among universities. Whereas the results indicated that level of agreement of the content of accounting information systems is higher than the previous module. The study recommended the necessity of linking between professional bodies and university education in order to retain accounting department survival.
