IAC helps you make a nourishing professional life

SINCE 1927 The Institute of Administration and Commerce (IAC) has been offering a variety of professional courses.

The reason is to accommodate various human strengths and weaknesses. Human beings are born onto the earth with different talents. IAC has produced graduates accepted by industry or business, governments and non-governmental organisations.

It is the vision and mission of the Institute of Administration and Commerce has a professional examining board to enhance professionalism in all sectors of the economy by training competent professionals.

The Institute has trained professionals who exhibit the following:

Competency
Professionals get the job done. They’re reliable and they keep their promises. If circumstances arise that prevent them from delivering on their promises, they manage expectations upfront, and they do their best to make the situation right. Professionals don’t make excuses, but focus on finding solutions.

Honesty and Integrity
Professionals exhibit qualities such as honesty and integrity. They keep their word, and they can be trusted implicitly because of this. They never compromise their values, and will do the right thing, even when it means taking a harder road.

More than this, true professionals are humble — if a project or job falls outside their scope of expertise, they’re not afraid to admit this.
They immediately ask for help when they need it, and they’re willing to learn from others.

Accountability
Professionals hold themselves accountable for their thoughts, words, and actions, especially when they’ve made a mistake. This personal accountability is closely tied to honesty and integrity, and it’s a vital element in professionalism.

Self-Regulation
They also stay professional under pressure. For instance, imagine a customer service employee who’s faced with an irate customer.

Instead of getting upset or angry in return, the employee exhibits true professionalism by maintaining a calm, business-like demeanor, and by doing everything that she can to make the situation right.

Genuine professionals show respect for the people around them, no matter what their role or situation.

They exhibit a high degree of emotional intelligence (EI) by considering the emotions and needs of others, and they don’t let a bad day impact how they interact with colleagues or clients.

Image
Professionals look the part – they don’t show up to work sloppily dressed, with unkempt hair.

They’re polished, and they dress appropriately for the situation. Because if this, they exude an air of confidence, and they gain respect for this.

      your exam standards are very poor.Exam papers always have mistakes.U copy exams from other institutes esp CIS and SAAA.your fees are unjustifiably high.your personnel is severely underqualified.You do not hold students forums.There is rampant corruption at the institute.No library…that explains why PAAB has consistently refused to accredit you

    I am graduating this year with IAC.
    Despite the unavailability of jobs, I am confident that in the near future, all will be well for us as a country economically.

    For now is one needs to acquire many professional qualifications as possible.

      Many qualifications without experience mean nothing – look at Gukurahundi Mugabe!

    IAC Zimbabwe is now a business making institution, it has become very difficult to pass your exams especially when one is left with few subjects. Some have re-registered several times to write one subject without success. You don’t have % marks reserved for assignments too. I think you need to be investigated and there is need to have external assessors to check on how you mark your exams provided you don’t bribe them. manyanya weduwee your fees are also very high.

      chistiko ukanyora chaizvo unongopassa. the problem you aim 50% so any slight mistake you fail.
