The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is a vibrant and cosmopolitan university anchored in Africa and intent on global excellence and stature.
With an emphasis on independent thinking, sustainable development and multiple partnerships, UJ is an international university of choice.
The University of Johannesburg's College of Business and Economics (CBE) was launched on 1 July 2017. The College of Business and Economics is strategically positioned in Johannesburg to be at the centre of regeneration in Africa through socio-
economic transformation. The College continues to offer a range of exciting programmes, enhancing the profile of management education in Africa, as well as globally, contributing to the University of Johannesburg's vision of promoting Pan-Africanism.
The College emerged from the former Faculty of Management and the former Faculty of Economic and Financial Sciences, since the University's ambition and ability to drive socio-
economic transformation aligns well with global best-practice in Business and Economics Education.
The new structure enables the combination of substantial and well-established programmes serving both the private and public sector which will enhance the synergies that exist amongst the various disciplines in the legacy Faculties.
The School of Accounting is one of the six schools within the College and the Department of Accountancy is one of the Departments within the School.
