UNILUS CITED AS CEEC SUCCESS STORY

University of Lusaka has been cited as one of the success stories of entities that have benefited from the Citizens Economics Empowerment Commission (CEEC) funding. CEEC Director for credit control and risk management Nchimunya Monde said the private learning institution, which accessed an empowerment business loan of K2 million in 2010, has expanded and is contributing to the advancement of higher education in Zambia. “The University of Lusaka is an excellent example of what CEEC has achieved over the years. There is definitely a huge difference to what UNILUS was in 2010 and to what it is today,” Mr Monde said in an interview yesterday. He said the development has also contributed to job creation in line with the CEEC objectives and is contributing to the treasury. “The government has also benefited from the University through corporate and employment tax that the institution pays through Zambia Revenue Authority. Further the University has contributed to improved incomes to students who have obtained various qualifications and these students earn incomes which they use to improve their livelihood,” he said. The University has also managed to repay its loan in record time of three years instead of five years demonstrating credit-worthiness. He said the commission remains committed to supporting enterprises that will contribute to the social economic development of the country.

New Programmes

Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science.
University of Lusaka (UNILUS) has introduced the Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science (BSc. ACTS). UNILUS has decided to introduce this degree programme because of the shortage of qualified Actuaries in Zambia and that insurance firms and pension funds have to source the services of Actuaries outside Zambia. All specialized courses will be taught by Academicians and Experts in the respective fields from countries that have been running these programs until such time that we will develop our own expertise. Actuarial Science is the intersection between risk and money. This is a branch of Science that uses Mathematics, Statistics, Economics and Financial knowledge to model and manage future uncertainty in Financial, Pension and Insurance industries. Particularly, insurance firms, pension and benefit firms, financial institutions and other similar organizations require the services of Actuaries in pricing products, and assessing risk of certain events occurring and to formulate policies that minimize the cost of that risk. Using their broad knowledge of Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Finance, and Business, Actuaries help design insurance policies, pension plans, and other financial strategies in a manner which will help ensure that the plans are maintained on a sound financial basis.
