IT skills of academics and practising accountants in Botswana
AbstractInformation Technology (IT) skills are important for practising accountants and accounting educators. This paper reports on a study done to evaluate the levels of IT skills of practising and accounting educators in Botswana, as well as their views on the important IT skills for practising accountants. A questionnaire was administered to 27 accounting lecturers and 250 practising accountants. Respondents were asked to indicate their IT skills levels as well as their views on the important IT skills that practising accountants should have. The results show that the self-reported IT skills of practising and accounting educators are lower than what they think practising accountants should have.
