Contribution of personal domain of spiritual well-being and family support of university students (Major in accounting) in Macau to their academic performance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This study aimed to examine the contribution of the personal domain of spiritual well-being of university students (major in Accounting) in Macau and family support to their academic performance. Survey data were collected from 101 accounting students of a Macau tertiary institute. The questionnaire was partly adapted from the spiritual well-being measure developed by Gomez and Fisher (2003). A comparison study with another university accounting program (n=133) of a similar study by Pong (2017) in Hong Kong was shown. Both two student samples results demonstrate that the accounting student’s academic performance was contributed positively by the personal domain of spiritual well-being and the family support factors as father’s job level and mother’s education level, while the student’s part-time work experience exercised negative impact. Parents’ job level and education level were peculiar and hardly modified. Unfavorable family support factor as student part-time work was suggested to be modified to a favorable factor, such as accounting career development-based internship.
