Governance

Governance is provided for within MCA structure and Policy
MCA is established by a Government order under the Education Act. The order provides that the College shall have a board of directors chaired by an independent person. As provided by the order, the board comprises officials from three related Government Ministries (Education, Finance and Department of Statutory Corporations), Malawi Accountants Board, Employers consultative association of Malawi, the University of Malawi and 3 independent persons. This composition ensures that key stakeholders and an element of independence are taken into account. The board makes policy and ensures implementation through reports it receives and resolutions it makes. The board works through three subcommittees namely the Finance and Audit, Appointments and remuneration and the Education committees.
