PHILOSOPHY OF THE PROGRAMME
The philosophy of the Accounting Programme is based on the predicament that academic and professional excellence is fundamental for any student to succeed in today’s environment. The academic programmes are designed to prepare students to be able to fit in a dynamic, complex, expanding and constantly changing accounting profession. The programme also takes into consideration the 21st century global economy which is increasingly sophisticated and interdependent. This is why in the School of Management Sciences, students start specialisation only in the fourth semester. The first three semesters are used to lay an interdependent broad base.
