Mr. Charles Ayariga, HOD

The Department of Accountancy was created as a section within the then Business Studies Department in 1965 to offer courses in the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) Stages I, II and III.  Post secondary programmes namely; Diploma in Business Studies (Accounting option) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants (Ghana) Intermediate Part ‘A’ and ‘B’ were later introduced.  With the introduction of the Education Reforms in 1993, the Business Studies Department split into two: Accountancy and Secretaryship Departments.

A semi-autonomous section of the Department, the Marketing Unit, was created in 1997 with the primary objective of offering the Marketing students a unique combination of opportunities to enable them catch up with the latest marketing management techniques.

On September 1, 2001, the Marketing Unit was made a full Department and the Purchasing and Supply programme brought under it.
