Abstract: Researchers are focusing on developing ERP integrating courses in all areas of business discipline including accounting. However, successful implementation of ERP integrated courses requires coordination among vendor, IT department, and academic discipline. We examined the issues pertaining to ERP integrated accounting courses, and assessed the impact on student learning. We conducted this study by evaluating student perceptions before and after taking an ERP integrated accounting course at Kocaeli University, Kocaeli, Turkey. A survey designed for the study included 31 questions. We converted survey responses using a 5-point Likert scale. We performed data analysis using descriptive statistical analysis tools including, frequency distribution, mean, and Mann-Whitney U-test. The findings of the study revealed student opinion exhibited significant differences in their pre- and post-responses. We also noticed insignificant differences of student opinions based on either gender or course sessions. Additionally, the student comments and responses revealed key benefits to them such as software knowledge and application, and job opportunities from the course.
