Welcome to the Department of Accounting

School of Business


Welcome to the Department of Accounting, Valley View University. As a department in the leading Christian university in Ghana, we train our students to exercise ethical judgment in the application of accounting knowledge. As a result, we ensure a healthy balance between ethics, mental knowledge, research and practice.
The Department of Accounting accepts students from every background provided they meet the University’s admission requirements. We also accept transfer students who have earned credits above grade C in the relevant courses from other recognized institutions. Holders of Higher National Diploma, Associate Degrees and similar qualifications in Accounting may be accepted as top-up students to earn a BBA degree.
Our graduates are conversant with current trends in Accounting because the course contents are constantly updated to suit the ever changing business environment. These course contents are harmonized with those of the professional accounting bodies to ensure that our students qualify for certain exemptions from professional courses. The BBA Accounting programme also prepares students to work in corporate organizations and contribute effectively to decision making.


The accounting department exists to achieve excellence in accounting education through teaching, research, and ethics.


Thus the specific objective of the accounting programme is to develop graduates who will
a. have a high level of proficiency, skill, and ability in accounting principles
b. be able to apply appropriate problem-solving methodologies to the analysis and solution of accounting/financial problems.
c. be able to demonstrate personal discipline, moral and social responsibility.
d. have a positive attitude toward business functions and appreciate the value of hard work to achieve advancement in the accounting profession.
e. continue their professional education in accounting.
