Academic Curriculum

Ensuring our students reach their full potential

Head Of Department: Mrs Kudakwashe Judith Chingono


We aim to make Christian Education, through the Departmental curriculum, instrumental to spreading the word of God to all nations. We aspire to transform global communities into productive markets where participants quest for Godly business ethics. To this end, the department’s motive is to teach Accounting, Business Studies, Economics and the Association of Business Executives (ABE) Professional courses in the context of biblical values.

Cambridge Courses
