The Uganda Christian University Bachelor of Business Administration has been given a global recognition by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), a global accounting body of accountants and Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU).

Godfrey Ssempungu, the Associate Dean of the Faculty of Business and Administration said, “This stamp of approval is a testament to the rigor of the program and the readiness of our graduates to join the accounting profession.”

ACCA offers exemptions from the ACCA Qualification and Foundation Level qualifications to students who have studied other relevant qualifications. This means you can start your studies at a level that is consistent with the knowledge and skills gained from prior learning and provides you with the quickest route to ACCA membership.

The exemption comes after a review of the UCU faculty of business curriculum and examination by the ACCA examination and accreditation team from UK.

This means that anyone completing BBA course at UCU and intending to study ACCA will be exempted six papers on the ACCA sylubus, according to Patrick Mubangizi, the coordinator ACCA and CPA at the Mukono based institution.

“And for those intending to do CPA, the accreditation team from Uganda will be exempted up to five papers.” He added.

Exemptions stop you from having to study the same topics that you have already been taught.
