Mak and ACCA enhance partnership to provide professional courses

On Monday 29th February 2016, Makerere University together with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Uganda signed an auxiliary Memorandum of Understanding to provide professional courses and standards to Makerere University students studying Bachelor of Commerce at a subsidized fee.

The auxiliary Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will equally support the students to enhance their professional development and careers in accounting, business and finance.

In October 2014, ACCA Uganda and Makerere University developed a collaborative relationship when both institutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote sustainable development of the Accountancy profession in Uganda. The parties equally agreed to share best practices in accounting, business and finance required by global standards.

According to the Dean School of Business-Makerere University College of Business and Management Sciences (CoBAMS) Dr. Umar Kakumba, the auxiliary Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) would strengthen the students’ enrollment for ACCA and also support the School of Business and the College at large to offer business and management services in a broader spectrum.
