The KASNEB accreditation adds to the ICPAR accreditation that UoK received in April, 2022. UoK’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Robert Rugimbana, in appreciating the visit by the KASNEB CEO to UoK a day before the accreditation stated that the accreditation is very important because it affirms and recognizes the contribution that UoK is making towards the provision of professional accountancy, finance, banking and procurement training not only to UoK students but also the citizens of Rwanda. Speaking on the accreditation of UoK, Charles Omanyo, the Director, School of Professional and Executive Programs at the university said the accreditation will enhance the status of the university in providing quality professional accountancy qualifications. Students will also have confidence that they are pursuing their professional courses with an accredited tuition provider. The accreditation by KASNEB validates the programs we are offering and certifies us to be leaders in the provision of professional courses. Apart from the approved KASNEB professional courses, UoK through the School of Professional and Executive Programs (SPEP) also offers CPAR, ACCA, CAT-R, FIAs and CIA. There is a shortage of over 5000 Professionally-qualified Accountants in the Public Sector in Rwanda and UoK is committed to ensuring that this deficit is bridged. Consequently, the university offers free tuition in CPA to its undergraduate and graduate students. Admissions for graduate, undergraduate and professional programs are ongoing at both UoK Kigali and Musanze Campuses. Apply online via: mis.uok.ac.rw/apply or call +250 788303386/ +250 788669642.
