Al Hayek Assistant Professor American University in the Emirates Dr. Abdul Hadi M. Al Khasawneh Assistant Professor American University in the Emirates Abstract: The aim of this study is to identify the suitability of accounting education in private universities to the requirements of the Jordanian labor market, measuring the reality of accounting education in Jordanian private university, identifying the expectations of accountants about future improvements to the education of accounting, and identifying the problems of accounting education in these universities. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, a questionnaire was developed and distributed to a sample of Jordanian private university graduates who have practiced the accounting profession. The study has come to many conclusions among which: that the current status of accounting education does not suit the requirements of the labor market, and that there is a possibility to achieve improvements in accounting education in order to keep up with the requirements of the labor market. Finally, the study concluded the number of recommendations that contribute to improve the accounting education to suit the requirements of the labor market. Key words: Accounting Education, Private University, Labor Market, Accountancy graduate students Introduction: Our contemporary world faces many changes and developments, where it reflects on most aspects of life, and these developments have spread to different sectors, causing radical changes in the various areas. Accordingly, higher education should be directed towards absorbing this issue to ensure that higher education can provide the community with competence and skills that is necessary to work under those developments. It should also reconsider the system of university education and achieve a new educational model characterized by flexibility, innovation and productivity. Accounting education represents the cornerstone for the success of the accounting profession, as the purpose is to give the students the skills, knowledge and experience to enable them to practice the profession efficiently, In addition to its contribution to the preparation and processing of students in accounting departments to be able to deal with the ongoing developments in various fields and keep up with modern developments. The relevance of accounting education for the requirements of the labor market is considered an urgent need to achieve the goals of economic and social development at all levels It also contributes to detect irregularities and to fighting of financial and administrative corruption.

2 control. Even, some organization faced a lot of financial problems and ceased practicing this profession (Alroyate, 2007). These issues increase the responsibilities of accounting educators in the university to do their duties in the preparation and graduation of professionalism the field of accounting who are able to filling the needs of the labor market, and also be able to deal with practical applications, changes, contemporary environmental issues, so the problem of the study can be reflected by following questions: 1.

Identify the reality of accounting education in private universities of Jordan and its suitability to the needs of the labor market. 2. Identify problems that faced accounting education in private universities in Jordan. 3. Identify future improvements in accounting education in Jordanian private universities from the perspective of graduate students who are practicing the profession of accounting in different sectors. Theoretical Framework and Literature Review: Theoretical Framework: The developments in various areas of life, especially the economy, make continuation of the accountancy profession imperative to meet the challenges and developments in the business environment. It has become necessary to provide accounting students with the competencies and diverse skills through effective accounting education process. Accounting education is of great importance given to the specificity of the perception of the accounting and the continuing need and standing accounting work within any society. Accounting is an organized profession responsible for registration, tabbing and summarizing economic events that could benefit those related directly or indirectly to economic unity (Dahmash et al., 2009). With the developments in accounting in general, there is an urgent need to improve the process of accounting education, and work to provide students with theoretical knowledge and practical applications, and there is a need now to use qualitative and quantitative techniques and digital applications. (Ataman, 2000) stated that the quality of accounting education directly affects the practice of the accounting profession; therefore the quality of accounting education is one of the most attractive factors for the profession. The research indicated that effective accounting education must be based on the consolidation of the theoretical part with practical applications, and to use appropriate training aids and equipment to provide interactive learning methods, and must care about accounting education with a set of competencies, such as the ability to solve problems, continuous learning, analysis capacity, time management, communication, information technology, and work in teams, so the accounting education students must qualify to possess such skills to make them able to create, measure and analyze information. To achieve this, many professional organizations including the Institute of American Management Accountants were highly concerned in the quality of accounting education, and stressed the need to develop this education to meet the market needs of accountants (Albrecht and Sack, 2000). In the same context as the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) focused on need attention to accounting education program to prepare and qualify accounting students and provide them with diverse knowledge and skills and the ability to draw conclusions and evaluation and information delivery (IFAC, 2003). However that interest in accounting education by the concerned authorities, there is still a gap between the actual services provided by the accounting profession and those expected, and there is an increasing gap between accounting education and the demands of the labor market (Matar, 1999). The researchers stress that a good and integrated educational system is the cornerstone in the process of preparing qualified accountants scientifically, 80

3 professionally, and technically. The education system with the needs of society actively contributes to economic development. In order to achieve this system the following requirements must be met (Alhabitiandromo, 2004): 1. The adoption of a clear policy to education as part of the Supreme National development policy stems from a system of priorities within the framework of national goals and compatible strategy. 2. The education program should be able to qualify the students and provide them with the kinds of knowledge and skills and provide them with the ability to evaluate and deliver information. 3. The accounting education system should be flexible so as to be able to keep up with technical developments and breakthroughs in the field of information, the no development of this curriculum continually, and the willingness of the accounting to keep up with technical developments in the field of information would have a negative impact of the accounting objectives. 4. The adoption of the method of education to motivate a student to seek knowledge. In addition to further communication between the students and professors to discuss some things and issues face to face. To achieve this objective, teaching methods and programs should include education workshops in the accounting department focusing on case studies and exercises. In a study to identify the most important problems of accounting education in developing countries, it was found that most of these problems (Garbieh, 1990): 1. Inappropriateness of accounting education topics in the colleges and institutes. 2. Lack of accounting books and other educational resources. 3. Shortage of qualified professors in colleges and institutes. 4. Lack of curriculum development according to environmental variable societal needs. Literature review: Alftimi (2010), surveyed some previous studies in both Libyan and international environment with the objective of identifying the most important skills and experiences which must be acquired by accounting graduates to be successful in his work. The study analyzed the most important skills, experiences, and knowledge that should be acquired by graduates entering the labor market including: personal skills, oral communication skills, access to sources of learning skills, and interpersonal skills. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, inductive approach was followed. The study concluded that there were many problems afflicting accounting education, which in turn affected the efficiency and ability of accounting graduates to keep abreast of modern methods applied in business. The study recommended encouraging scientific research through the study of labor market requirements in the local environment and the skills required and expected by accountants, in order to obtain graduates with professional skills who are able to meet the requirements of the work environment. Esan, (2006), highlighted the extent of quantitative and qualitative correspondence between the output of higher education and the requirements of social and economic development in the Sultanate of Oman. He also aimed to highlight the levels and the close relationship between education and development in the Sultanate, its reality, and activate their developmental goals. To achieve that goal, the study addressed the topic of harmonization of education output and requirements of development through three main approaches including: first: development and its requirements, second: output of higher education and the challenges facing it, third: the nature of appropriateness between the output of higher education and development requirements. Among the study recommendations: The contents of an educational program should be developed to be compatible with the nature of the objectives of the society, and future expectations. This can be achieved by reviewing the content of current programs and to comply with contemporary conditions and adapt to the developments and changes, so that it does not conflict with the parameters and principles of the society. The contents of an educational program should be developed to be compatible with the nature of the objectives of the society, and contemporary realities and future expectations, which can be achieved by reviewing the content of current programs to comply with conditions and adapt to the developments and changes, so that it does not conflict with the parameters and principles of the society. Rahahleh (2006), assessed the curriculum and teaching method in the accounting department at Al al-bayt University, degree of agreement with the philosophy of the University, and its mission, by answering a series of questions, such as: is there a fit between taught courses and the university philosophy? What skills and competencies student acquire during their study? What are the deficiencies in the curriculum? To achieve this, the content analysis of the study plan was used and descriptive statistics for data analysis. The research questionnaire was distributed to all expected graduate students for the academic year 2004/2005. The study found that there was a need to reconsider the study plan, teaching methods, and means that do not meet the University philosophy and modern requirements. The study recommended reviewing the study plan, and the introduction of e-learning methods in teaching. Helles, (2005), studied the effectiveness of teaching in the accounting department at the Islamic University, from the point of view of students, through a questionnaire designed for this purpose. Teaching effectiveness was identified by three main areas: the course and its contents, the textbook, supplementary readings, assignments, and exams. The questionnaire was distributed to a random sample of students from the Department of accounting t during the academic year 2002/2003. The study showed that the questions related to effective teaching were positively assessed by the students. Qasim and Shbith (2007), aimed at determining the curriculum to keep pace with materials accounting for dynamic changes in the area of information technology based on curriculum in accounting sections in Syrian 81

4 universities. To achieve this, survey method was used in parallel with the deductive approach. The results showed that the accounting qualification in the field of information technology plays an important role in the practice, and the results showed a clear gap between academic knowledgebased curricula for accounting and material requirements of the labor market with regard to the subject of information technology. The study recommended the need for increased attention to the subject of information technology in the curriculum of different accounting rules, by increasing the number of hours devoted to this aspect, strengthening applied and quantitative dimension to accounting materials related to the subject of information technology and to maintain an ongoing mechanism to develop study plans for accounting in Syrian universities Yucel et al. (2012) aimed to determine to what extent the accounting education in Turkey covers the expectations of accounting students who are candidates for employment in the accounting profession. The questionnaire was distributed to undergraduate accounting department at the (Uludag University) and this university is one of the largest universities in Turkey. The factor analysis, one sample T- test has been used in this study. The results of the study showed that the accounting education in Turkey is not effective. The effectiveness of accounting education is increased and suggestions provided by accounting students should be considered. Research Methodology: This section describes the study sample and population of the study, and the statistical tools used in the analysis. It also describes the development of procedures and steps used to assess the validity and reliability to achieve the study goals. Population and Sample: The population of the study consists of all accounting graduates of Jordanian private universities. A total of 200 questionnaires were distributed to accounting graduates conveniently selected from the private universities. 180 questionnaires were returned to the researcher. All returned questionnaires were checked to ensure their usability in the analysis. This resulted in the deletion of 22 questionnaires of the returned questionnaires and the retention of 158 useable questionnaires (n=158). Reliability and validity: In order to establish the reliability of the research questionnaire, it was given to professionals in the related area for further evaluation. The reliability was also assessed by calculating Cronbach s alpha values. An alpha value of 0.60 or higher is normally considered satisfactory for most purposes. The Cronbach s alpha value of this study is Table 1 Distribution of sample according to the variable of qualifications and years of experience Variable Education Level Number Percentage % Qualifications Bachelor/Accounting Masters/Accounting PhD/Accounting Total % Years of Experience < 5 years years > 10 years Total % Table 1 show that the percentage of bachelor's degree holders is (59.5%), masters (25.9%), and PhD degree holders is (14.6%).
