In response to the national demand as well as demand of industry and commerce, the need has arisen for the Knutsford University College to introduce post graduate programmes. This necessitated the establishment of the Knutsford School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGSR) in September 2017.

The School of Graduate Studies and Research is responsible for coordination of Graduate Studies in the University and is headed by a Dean.

The vision of the School is to become an excellent Graduate School of academic, research and professional accomplishment for a life-long career development in the University. Thus, the Knutsford School of Graduate Studies and Research provides a holistic education based on quality teaching and learning, and research to students to become very competitive in the job world.

The programmes are tailored to ensure that students develop to become professionals who can manage ethically, responsibly and holistically in a range of organisations in an increasingly global and rapidly changing environment. We pride ourselves in the knowledge that our graduates, upon completion are successful in almost all spheres of business, industrial, community and professional life, contributing effectively to local, national and international development.

The School believes that its first responsibility is to the students (student-centred education), staff, alumni and all other stakeholders.  The SGSR strives to be vibrant and progressive in the total drive of the University towards excellence in the global context.

The SGSR commences with the following programmes:

  • MSc Accounting and Taxation
  • MPhil Accounting and Finance

The Knutsford School of Graduate Studies and Research is determined to adequately meet the expectations of all students for graduate studies. The School looks forward to welcoming all prospective students.
