Bachelors of Science in Accounting & Finance

This Programme was designed to generally prepare our students to equip them with skills and knowledge competencies in the field of accounting and finance. It is meant to provide a bridging gap for students of diploma qualification who would have loved to pursue a degree in Accounting or a professional course such as CPA or ACCA. The Bachelors of Science in Finance and Accounting gives a chance to those students to pursue their dream and even work in the same field. Students are also given a firm background to further their qualification on successful completion of the course. The course is intended to equip students with all the necessary skills needed in the field of Accounting in both private and public enterprises.

Therefore the course includes many course units meant to impart skills of an all rounded professional. It also enlightens them on the reality facing us today so the learners endeavor to create self employment rather than always wait to be employed.
