The Bachelor of Accounting (Chartered Accountancy) specifically aims at:

systems of accounting; 
o developing the ability of students to analyse information from a wide range of sources; 
o equipping students with the requisite skills to work effectively as individuals and as members of a team; 
o enabling students to communicate effectively in the workplace.
The  programme  also  intends  to  provide  a  diverse  range  of  skills and  competencies  that are  both  discipline‐specific  and job‐

their knowledge and learnt competencies to the practices of Auditing, Taxation, Financial and Management Accounting at a more

practices. The  revised programme has been endorsed by members of  the Programme Advisory Committee and  the Institute of 
Chartered  Accountants  in  Namibia  (ICAN),  while  tertiary  institutions  in  the  SADC  region  were  also  consulted  for  purposes  of 
benchmarking (please find evidence of consultation and support attached).
