Business Studies Division

Organisations are becoming fast paced and result-oriented. Organisations no longer report about
activities done but rather about results achieved. It is for this reason that your Institute of Choice,
mandated to provide you with quality market-driven programmes invites you to apply in
internationally recognised diploma and certificate programmes

Our accreditation to the Zambia Qualifications Authority (ZAQA) has enabled us to graduate you in
a diploma and certificate that employers will recognise. The value of diplomas and certificates had
become questionable by employers over the years. However, with our ZAQA accreditation and
the extended learning hours, your diploma or certificate qualification will be relevant to you both at
home and abroad.
