ZEGU introduces innovative and demand driven programs

As part of fulfilling its mandate, the Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU) has introduced the following innovative demand driven programs:

1. Bachelor of Commerce Honours Degree in Accounting in partnership with Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)
Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU) and Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) entered into a partnership that has seen ZEGU embedding ACCA curriculum into its Bachelor of Commerce Honours Degree in Accounting resulting in students enrolled for this programme graduating with a degree and qualifying for maximum exemptions when registering for  ACCA professional qualification after graduating. Other benefits of the partnership include: ZEGU accessing ACCA curriculum and library, ACCA assisting with student placement on attachment, ACCA experts delivering lectures on some topics and ACCA upskilling ZEGU staff. This arrangement will bring convenience to accounting students who will not need to begin another long journey of studying to acquire professional qualifications after graduating from a university.
2. Diploma in School Leadership and Financial Management
The University also responded to the gaps identified by the audit carried out by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education in school leadership by coming up with a Diploma in School Administration and Financial Management. This diploma programme addresses the gaps in school leadership with particular focus on administration, financial management and Information Communication Technology (ICT).  Prospective candidates for this programme include school heads, deputy heads, teachers in charge and other teachers who wish to develop themselves in preparation for their career advancement
3. Diploma in Microfinance Management
Owing to the growth of the Microfinance Sector in Zimbabwe and beyond, the university aims to address the lack of comprehensive programmes to build the capacity of those in the sector. After consulting some stakeholders in this particular sector, ZEGU is excited to introduce a Diploma in Microfinance to equip employees and prospective employees for the Microfinance Industry with relevant skills.
4. Other Programmes in 2017
Other new programmes to be introduced in February 2017 include Bachelor of Education Honours Degree in Early Childhood Education (ECD) and Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE). These and the already existing programmes will be offered from both the main campus in Bindura and the Harare campus situated in Belvedere.
