  1. Hello, being a graduate in BBA- FINANCE OPTION With IT at Maseno University, I think I deserve to be exempted from all the six foundation level units. I had been issued with an exemption letter without these two units included (Quantitative Analysis & ICT) of which I think I had thoroughly covered during my degree coursework. Please, advise on the way forward. Regards, Winfred.

  2. We welcome this,. Let the Accountancy training be harmonized ,& see Academic ACCOUNTANCY programmes (BCOM/BBM/BBA-ACCOUNTING OPTIONS) take a shorter time to get to CPAK,..& at the same time Kasneb work close with kenyan Universities offering Business courses to Harmonize the Degree programme with the professional paper to. Avoid duplication of papers at the various levels .(just the way ACCA does with Oxford Brooke’s University.Why cove FM FM IN CPA,Bcom & MBA?…Just to mention afew,.when the content is the same?

  3. If I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree finance speciality,what am I being exempted from in new KASNEB 2021 syllabus??
