Abstract

Information and communication technology (ICT) is transforming whole industries and much of higher education. However the black box of computer programs that supports many technological innovations is as mysterious to most people today (including accounting practitioners) as well performed magic. This paper demonstrates that accountancy professionals will benefit from an understanding of basic programming concepts to function more effectively in today’s technology driven business world. Excel VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is shown to be an appropriate choice as an environment to develop programming concepts knowledge that mitigates several of the common obstacles encountered by many in learning to program.
