The increasing complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity in the operating environments of organisations make it difficult for their leaders and employees to create and preserve sustainable value. Finance professionals with high quality technical skills, deep understanding of their organisations, and the ability to influence and lead people can provide the insight those organisations need to craft and successfully execute their strategies. The BMA syllabus has been designed to enable this. The programme’s syllabus and assessment bridges skills gaps of newly qualified finance graduates, meeting the management accounting employability needs of both business and people.

The BMA degree programme is designed to meet the growing demand for professionally qualified management accountants who have also acquired academic competences. It is intended for the following groups of people.


To qualify for admission to the BMA degree programme an applicant must have any of the following qualifications.

  • Five credits at ‘O’ Level including English and Mathematics
  • Part or full professional qualifications such as ZiCA, CA Zambia, CIMA and ACCA
  • Any relevant three year accountancy diploma from a reputable college or university
  • At least three ‘A’ level passes including Mathematics or equivalent
  • Any degree from a recognized institution.


The programme runs for four years on full time, part time and distance education and not more than five academic years in case of any eventualities or unforeseen circumstances.
