Azania College of Management

Quality education is our top priority

Originally operating under provisional registration and ownership of Morning Star Education, Azania College of Management (ACOM) was granted full registration by the National Council for Technical Education in 2009.

ACOM initially provided Law and Business Administration at Diploma and Certificate levels at the Dar es Salaam campus and the Zanzibar Centre with a total enrollment of 150 students. Today, the College has over 900 students.


At present ACOM has two departments:

Department of Law

Diploma in Law (DLA) – two years

Certificate in Law (CLA) – one year

Department of Accountancy

Diploma in Accountancy (DAC) – two years

Certificate in Accountancy (CAC) – one year

Four new programmes will be introduced later this year in the new Department of Procurement and Supplies and the Department of Business Management. The Centre for Continuing Education will be established to offer pre-entry programmes and professional training to candidates who do not meet the minimum entry qualifications.

ACOM has advanced tremendously since its establishment, having operated under stiff competition with its own generated resources. In the last two years the College has sponsored two academic staff members for postgraduate studies and in this academic year, another two members will benefit from the scheme.

Future plans
The College, under its new and vibrant management team, is undertaking substantial transformative efforts, e.g. significant improvement of its library services with the online library to be launched on 8 November 2014, the climax of the 8th graduation ceremony. Joint programmes with local and foreign institutions are currently being developed.

A fully-fledged campus is currently operating in Zanzibar, with a further campus expected in Arusha over the next year; other regions are expected to follow soon.

Degree programmes tailored along existing societal demands will be introduced in the near future. The long-term plan is to establish a bigger campus on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam where the College will have sufficient space for accommodation, lecture theatres, sports and other extra-curricular activities.

Among the challenges facing the College are financial constraints and a lack of official premises. To overcome these challenges the College has earmarked new sources of income including short courses and joint venture programmes. At this juncture it is equally important to call upon the state and other stakeholders to realise the role of the private sector in Tanzania and extend their support.
