Abstract

The current business environment is growing at a rapid pace. Consequently, it affects manner in which accounting is practiced. The role of accountants is shifted from being mere financial information providers to the ones who are directly and actively involved in different levels of managerial functions. Accountants in the era of globalisation need to be equipped with multiple skills and competencies in order to assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities in a more effective manner. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the accounting education system to innovatively develop academic approaches that can prepare future accountants for this challenging role. Perhaps, one of such approaches is through the employment of an active-oriented learning method known as the ASAP. The objective of the study is to examine students’ perceptions on the usefulness of the ASAP
as an action-oriented learning approach in developing the needful skills of the accounting profession and industry. In achieving the objective, an experiment-based research utilising an online survey using a questionnaire has been conducted on 45 accounting students who have completed a course in accounting software. In general, the results indicate positive perceptions among the students that the ASAP is useful in developing both technical and non-technical skills. The operationalization of the ASAP helps developing the students’ ability to identify relevant data and apply diverse
knowledge within business realms.
