DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTANCY

BRIEF BACKGROUND

The Accountancy Department has been running since 1990 when it first offered the Bachelor of Accountancy Degree from a general program which used to be called Bachelor of Commerce. Since then, the Department has produced over 2,000 graduates in Accountancy who have contributed to the social economic development of the country and are still of high demand even overseas. To date the Department has grown in terms of number of programs offered and innovative modes of study to accommodate the growing demand for the courses housed by the Department.


Currently, the programs are delivered via different modes which include the day release (the generic), the special evening intake, the special holiday block, the special weekend block and soon to come the distance learning block.

MISSION AND VISION

The Department aligns itself with the vision of the College as well as that of the University as whole. Às a Department, we strive to offer demand-driven accountancy and finance academic programmes that provide solutions to stakeholders’ problems and assist in exploiting opportunities through:
  • Strengthening the current programmes through periodic reviews.
  • Introducing new programmes to meet changing needs and conditions in the business environment. This would result in increased enrolment which is in line with the University’s strategic objective of expanding equitable access to tertiary education.
  • Developing the right quality of academic staff to support the department’s programmes.
  • Intensifying contacts with employers in private and public sectors as a vital source of feedback on the department’s programmes.

PROGRAMS OFFERED


Currently, the Department is offering two undergraduate programs namely Bachelor of Accountancy, Bachelor of Commerce in Internal Audit and in the pipeline is a new post graduate program Master of Finance and Accounting to have its first intake soon.
