The demand for qualified financial analysts who can contribute to the growth of the financial services sector in Zambia has made it necessary to introduce the BAF degree programme. The collaboration between UNZA and ZCAS presents an opportunity to produce a product that will help raise the standard of financial analysis knowledge and skills in the country and the region.
The aim of this programme is to equip the students with knowledge and skills in the fields of accountancy, banking and finance in order for them to effectively operate in financial systems and similar roles.

Each year of study will be divided into two semesters and full-time students are expected to take four courses in each semester while evening students are expected to take three courses and part-time students up to three courses. Except for Research Methods and Dissertation courses in the final year, the rest of the courses are structured in such a way that semester one courses are not a pre-requisite of semester two courses in each academic year. The course structure is as outlined below;
