BSAF gets global accreditation

BY STAFF WRITER

The Uganda Christian University Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance (BSAF) has received an international accreditation by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), a global body that brings together professional accountants.

In a letter dated September 27, addressed to the Programme Coordinator of the bachelor’s programme, Anthony K. Agume, and signed by ACCA’s Professional Qualifications Approval Officer, Kim Gilchrist, the body writes:

“I am pleased to advise that ACCA has now fully assessed this programme for accreditation. Cohorts will be eligible for exemption as follows,” the letter reads in part.

In a write-up shared with The Standard, Agume said, “Accrediting our BSAF programme is also clear testimony that our curriculum for Bachelor of Science in Accounting & Finance at UCU is designed to meet the needs of the job market and graduates of this program are very competitive in the job market.”

He added: “The program has not only been accredited by ACCA but also recognised by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda- (ICPAU) as the institute recently awarded exemptions of some papers at Level one to all students who graduate from UCU with the Bachelor of Science in Accounting & Finance.”

The five papers from which UCU graduates will be exempted include: Accountant in Business (F1), Management Accounting (F2), Financial Accounting (F3), Corporate Law (F4) and Financial Reporting (F7).
