Bachelor of Accounting (Charted Accountancy)

Course Overview

The Bachelor of Accounting (Chartered Accountancy) is intended for students who wish to pursue careers in any of the sub - systems of the accounting function, including auditing and taxation. The degree represents a coherent introduction to the broad knowledge, concepts and problem - solving techniques in the areas of Management Accounting, Financial Accounting, Taxation and Auditing. Students will have the opportunity to develop the required cognitive/intellectual skills, practical skills and key transferable skills, and apply these to complex accounting issues in the context of an organisation.

The Bachelor of Accounting (Chartered Accountancy) specifically aims at:

providing students with a sound foundation in the fundamental concepts, theories and frameworks of the four sub - systems of accounting;
developing the ability of students to analyse information from a wide range of sources;
equipping students with the requisite skills to work effectively as individuals and as members of a team;
enabling students to communicate effectively in the workplace.
The programme also intends to provide a diverse range of skills and competencies that are both discipline - specific and job - related and facilitates the development of highly generic cognitive and intellectual skills that would enable graduates to apply their knowledge and learnt competencies to the practices of Financial and Management Accounting, taking into consideration international generally accepted accounting practices.

The Diploma in Accounting and Finance, as a first exit level, prepares students for self - directed application of knowledge and skills in dealing with accounting issues in different types of organisation s including manufacturing concerns.
