Zambia Centre for Accountancy Studies


The Zambia Centre for Accountancy Studies (ZCAS) is a leading provider of tuition in Accountancy, Business and Information Technology programmes in the southern African region.

Established by an act of parliament in 1988, the Centre is mandated to promote research and advancement of learning in Accountancy, Investment, Finance, Economics, Business Law, Marketing, Banking, Business Administration, Information Technology, Project Management and related studies.

ZCAS has acquired international recognition for the quality of tuition it provides. It has produced consistently high examination pass rates and currently boasts of carrying the prestigious ACCA ‘Platinum’ tuition provider – one of the only two in the entire southern African region; CIMA ‘Quality Learning Partner’ status from CIMA UK; and the only ZICA ‘Gold’ tuition provider in Zambia. Due to its outstanding reputation as ‘The Centre of Excellence in the Delivery of International Education’, ZCAS now attracts students from outside of Zambia. Student enrolment hovers at around 3000.
