Programmes which are in high demand fall in the areas of Accounting, Banking, Finance, Public Finance, and Procurement. The department offers two streams for MBA in areas of finance and investment and financial risk management which are open for students’ enrolment on an alternative basis.  In addition, application for doctoral studies are welcomed in broad areas of accounting, finance, economics, public procurement, and public finance. The department works in close collaboration with professional bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Accountant England and Wales, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants for accreditation of academic programme. Furthermore, the department share collaborative support with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development and the Public Procurement Office in the running of short-courses and executive courses in fields of public finance and public procurement, respectively. To ensure quality and standard of programmes the department relies on a pool of NINE full-time faculties, several local industry specialists and professionals, and other external faculties. The academic programmes are constantly reviewed at an interval of 4-5 years to ensure that emerging and contemporary issues are reflected in the curriculum of existing modules as well as new modules are added based on what is required in the world of work. Also, students are exposed to community learning and engagement (as per the CLEn initiative) as well as work experience is made available to full time learners through job placement in organisations for a minimum of 3 months. At the DAFE we do our level best to meet the demands and expectations of our students, business community, and public bodies.
