The CCAM programme consists of a two-year course (first and second degrees). This programme has been designed in conformance with the demands of the Ministry of Secondary and University Education of the Democratic Republic of Congo, specifically the official programme of management courses (Business Management). To conform to international standards and to make the beneficiaries of the proposed training competitive in the global marketplace, it corresponds to 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), i.e. 60 ECTS per academic year.
