Abstract

In recent decades, the rapid growth of technology has resulted in software being widely applied in various domains. Attitudes toward using software play an important role in every industry. This study aims to explore the software literacy of accounting students along with their personal traits, such as learning styles and user behavior. This was a twofold study; we aimed to investigate the learning styles of accounting students and also discuss the correlation between learning styles and software literacy. Eighty-six freshmen, majoring in accounting, were participants in this study, and the results reveal that a sequential learning style is the variable most related to software literacy. Furthermore, we also found that most of the accounting freshmen utilize an active, sensing, visual and sequential learning style.
