Strathmore Accounting and Finance Students Earn Maximum Exemption in ACCA
The Strathmore School of Management and Commerce, Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Finance Options) degree has been awarded exemption in 9 Papers of Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification. The exemption of the 9 is the maximum exemptions possible under the ACCA exemptions accreditation programme. This means that the BCOM students majoring in Accounting and Finance will now receive ACCA exemptions from papers F1 to F9.
Dr. David Wangombe, Dean SMC, noted that the exemption confirms Strathmore University BCOM degree meets the quality educational standards required to enable our graduates acquire necessary professional and practical skills that employers look for in graduates thus enabling them to compete globally.
Earlier in the year Strathmore University entered into an agreement with ACCA in which BCOM Program is recognized to have embedded ACCA qualification. This implies that the students will simultaneously earn the ACCA professional qualification alongside their degree and accelerate their progression in accountancy and finance faster than their counterparts. The ACCA accreditation will hold for graduates who will graduate on or after 1 January 2017 and up to 31 December, 2021.
