Digital disruption has led to have reshaped existing business models and facilitated the emergence of new ones wherein repetitive and mundane tasks are becoming less important and the need for high-level skills is increasing. Therefore, accounting graduates requires a new set of aptitudes, over and above basic technical accounting knowledge, which includes digital literacy, problem-solving, leadership, critical and analytical thinking, creativity and innovation, originality and initiative, customer service, and conflict management. The current industrial demanded for accounting educators in higher education institutions (HEIs) to refresh the curriculum to better meet evolving labour market demands, such as through innovative forms of work-integrated learning (WIL). Therefore, the current study investigates the impact of remote learning concept and online WIL for accounting education in a higher education setting. An online focus group interview are conducted with students of public higher education institutions in Malaysia to capture their perceptions on the quality and adequacy of the integration of remote learning and online WIL application for accounting education. WIL is widely used in accounting education especially during remote learning, and the findings suggested that both enhances students’ preparedness for future work, particularly considering recent changes affecting graduates’ employability outcomes.
