In this paper the authors’ purpose is to examine students’ perceptions of empowerment in accounting courses as a result of their experience in cooperative learning classes who attended cooperative learning and traditional classes. This study involved a survey of 288 students who were studying the first year of a business degree at institutions in Libya. Reflections and interviews were also conducted. Data were analysed using reliability tests, factor analysis, and one away ANOVA. The results indicate that students who attended cooperative learning classes are more empowered and competent in terms of exams’ performance than students who attended traditional classes.
