The purpose of this study is to determine the degree of importance of each topic included in the Accounting Information System (AIS) course from the practitioners' point of views. This study was motivated by the increasing progress in information technology which proposed to reexamine the AIS course in order to meet the expectations and requirements of the profession. Three hundred and forty (340) questionnaires were sent to three different groups of companies namely public accounting firms, industry and commerce and banking and finance. The response rate received is 22.35%. Respondents' opinions on the importance of AIS topics were measured using a five-point like scale. Results from the mean analysis showed that practitioners in Malaysia perceived all AIS topics as important. However, result from ANOVA analysis indicated that only five (5) topics were perceived significantly different among the three groups. The five topics are general concept of accounting information systems, procurement cycle application soffware, entity-relationship diagram and programming languages. Further analysis using Scheffe test indicated that respondents’ opinion by industry were significantly different only on four (4) topics namely procurement cycle, application software, entity-relationship diagram and programming languages.
