Department of Accounting

Background of the department

Currently the department is carrying out its activities with a total of 15 staff. Out of this number, all are fully academic staffs. Out of the academic staff members, 9 MA degree holders, 2 doctors and4 with BA degree holders. Out of these numbers, 13staff members are on duty, and 2 of the academic staffs are on study leave doing their MA degree in Hawasa, Arsi and Gonder Universities.

In the  existing  organizational  dynamics  and  global  integrations,  the  importance  of vibrant  Accounting  and  Finance  professionals  is  indisputable.  The  central  role  of accountancy and finance in society make them interesting disciplines in their own right, especially  for  those  who  are  interested  in  how  economic  or  financial  activities  of  any economic  players,  both  at  the  micro  and  macro  level,  influences  and  structures  our lives. Over  the  past  periods,  the  program  has  long  been  working  on  the  conventional knowledge based course based delivery system with its many drawbacks including lack of  academic  coherence,  poor  assessment  and evaluation,  fragmented  knowledge,  poor quality  and  relevance  of  the  curriculum  as  a  whole  which  could  not  produce  highly qualified and competitive graduates at the job markets. The  modularized  curriculum  constitutes  modules  and  courses  carefully  designed  to transform  the  conventional  academic  incoherence  approach  to  competence  based teaching/learning approach behind the modularization.
