This study examined the role of ICT integration in accounting education on the value adding capacity of accounting students in Nigeria. The study adopted the Survey research design involving the collection of data from accounting students in selected private universities in Nigeria. Copies of Questionnaire were administered to 147 respondents out of which 111 were gathered. Pearson Correlation and Linear Regression were employed in the analysis of the data collected with the use of Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS). The results revealed that integration of ICT (accounting software packages and IT knowledge and skills) into accounting education (curriculum) would help accounting graduates fulfill their responsibility of adding value to organizations. Consequently, it was recommended that the Nigeria Universities Commission (NUC) and relevant educational bodies should compulsorily integrate (in all higher institution) into accounting curriculum at all level a practical course on accounting packages and IT knowledge and skills.
