ABSTRACT

This research project aims to explore the accounting and problem-solving skills that are essential for business education students to succeed in job performance within organizations in the digital era. As technology continues to shape the business landscape, it is crucial for business education programs to equip students with the necessary skills to navigate complex financial tasks and solve problems effectively in a digital environment.

The study will utilize a mixed-methods research design, combining qualitative and quantitative data collection methods. Qualitative data will be collected through interviews and focus groups with business educators and industry professionals, while quantitative data will be obtained through surveys administered to business education students. The research objectives include identifying the specific accounting skills required in the digital era, determining the problem-solving competencies necessary for job performance, and examining the perceived importance of these skills from the perspectives of educators and employers. The findings of this research project will contribute to the existing literature by providing insights into the accounting and problem-solving skills that are highly valued in organizations operating in the digital era. The research will shed light on the specific technical competencies, such as data analysis, financial software proficiency, and information security, that business education students need to possess. Additionally, it will explore the cognitive skills, such as critical thinking, decision-making, and adaptability, that are crucial for effective problem-solving in a digital business environment.

The implications of this research project extend to business education curriculum development, instructional design, and career guidance. The findings will inform educators and curriculum developers about the necessary adjustments needed to equip students with the requisite accounting and problem-solving skills for job performance in the digital era. Furthermore, the research will provide insights for career counselors, enabling them to guide students in developing the right skill set and competencies to meet the demands of the ever-evolving digital workplace.
