School of Accounting Sciences
Overview and summary of the School itself, the focus and dedication of the School
The School of Accounting Sciences consists of six programmes, namely the programmes for Chartered Accountancy, Management Accountancy, Financial Accountancy, Forensic Accountancy, Taxation and Research. These programmes are responsible for the training of professional accountants as well as research in the Accounting Sciences. The School offers training in undergraduate courses with regard to six BCom degrees (of which four contain all the main subjects within the School) and post-graduate training entails the offering of four honours degrees. Research in Accounting Sciences is conducted by means of four master’s degrees and three doctoral degrees. The personnel corpus consists of 35 academic personnel, eight support staff and seven academic clerks. The students constitute the largest part (nearly 50%) of the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences.
Undergraduate training within the School is in Afrikaans, but English students are accommodated by means of simultaneous interpreting for Chartered Accountancy students. The School is interested in innovative thinkers who are motivated, are interested in eminence and who place a high premium on integrity. Because the School of Accounting Sciences has proved itself as an important role-player of eminent training, we are swamped with prospective students from across the whole country as well as, among others, Namibia, and resultantly, the School is in the privileged position to be able to choose only the best students. Prospective students are invited to become part of the School of Accounting Sciences.
