ACCA to Partner with CU
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is planning a working partnership with Covenant University. According to its Students’ Support Manager, ACCA Nigeria, Mr. Joseph Udoh, the University is one of the selected 10 reputable institutions the group would be working with.
Mr. Udoh made this known during a courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor on Thursday, February 20, 2014.
The Student Support Manager noted that the Association would also work with the Department of Accounting for professional accreditation of the programme and possible increase in the number of exempted courses in ACCA examination from the present three.
He opined that this would increase the number of prospective students seeking admission to study Accounting in Covenant University.
Mr. Udoh added that the partnership would afford the Association the opportunity to work with the students and register them for ACCA for free.
This, according to him, would give students who may want to develop a career in Accounting, the opportunity to attend the Association’s Summit, and acquire practical knowledge which would help them in the practice.
Also speaking at the meeting, the Business Relationship Manager, who is a graduate of Covenant University, Mr. Kehinde Oluwadare, noted that the Association and leading Accounting Firm are in need of the products of Covenant University because of their spiritual and moral training.
The Head of Department of Accounting, Dr. Francis Iyoha was particularly happy that a product of Covenant University is doing well at ACCA and expressed his joy at the planned partnership of the Association with CU.
The Vice-Chancellor, Covenant University, Professor Charles Ayo was also glad to see his former student in Computer and Information Science doing well in ACCA.
He said that the mission that brought them to the University is in line with what the University preaches.
