Welcome to the Department of Accounting and Finance. The Department was founded in 2011 with the restructuring of the then Department of Economics and Business Studies which was upgraded to a full-fledged School of Business and Economics. The Department’s mandate is to teach and examine accounting, finance and related disciplines at Maseno University as well as spearhead research and disseminate knowledge in the fields of accounting and finance. Our programmes are structured to reflect the changing world of accounting and finance and provide a firm foundation for the world of work, necessary academic subjects, and consideration of corporate governance principles, management and quantitative analysis studies that influence decision-making in a finance and accounting environment.
The Department endeavors to increase enrolment into Accounting and Finance programmes and enhance learning performance by providing clear guidelines on course content delivery and evaluation on a continuous basis.
