The Zambian financial services sector has continued to experience growth following liberalisation of the economy in the 1990s. The banking sector has particularly seen the introduction of many international banks over the last two decades. As a developing country, it is expected that Zambia will continue to grow its banking and finance sectors. Such growth in these and related sectors require a cadre of properly trained and experienced finance professional to manage the sector.

The aim of this degree programme is to equip candidates with knowledge and skills in the fields of banking, finance and capital markets.

  • 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 recognised institution
  • part or full qualifications in ZIBFS, ZICA, CIMA and ACCA


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.
