The field of accounting is rapidly evolving due to the affordability and availability of accounting software. Number crunching is no longer the core function of the modern accountant as computers have taken the fiscal calculating out of their hands. Accountants are now expected to take on a variety of responsibilities including financial planning, analysis, forecasting, internal controls and decision support that previously lay outside the scope of their job description. Accountants must therefore, have a sound grounding in all areas of business including operations, marketing, human resources management, ICT, strategy and finance. This programme is tailored to meet this broad base of knowledge and skills required of the modern accountant.

The aim of this programme is to equip students with knowledge and skills in order for them to carry out accounting roles in the areas of financial reporting, financial management, auditing, management accounting, taxation and consultancy effectively.

The BACC degree programme is designed to meet the growing demand for professionally qualified accountants who have also acquired academic competences.

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

  • Five credits at ‘O’ Level including English and Mathematics or three ‘A’ level passes including Mathematics
  • Holders of part professional accountancy qualifications such as ACCA-FIA, CIMA-CBA and ZICA-technician who wish to acquire both a professional and an academic qualification
  • Any eligible person who wishes to pursue a career in accountancy.


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.
