KCA University is a non-profit making institution, founded as Kenya College of Accountancy in July 1989 by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) to improve the quality of accountancy and financial management training in the country.

The college was founded after a study conducted by Chart Foulks Lynch CIPFA services of the UK in 1987/88. The study revealed that the Kenyan economy required an additional four hundred qualified Accountants every year. The output of qualified accountants from the training institutions then was less than one hundred.

On commencement of its services in 1989, it enrolled 170 students but this number tremendously increased over the years and today, enrollment stands at over 15,000 students annually.

In line with their vision, experience and exponential growth in student numbers, KCA applied to the Commission for Higher Education (CHE) for university status in the year 2000 and on 26th July 2007, CHE, awarded KCA a Letter of Interim Authority. (LIA). KCA University then began its operations.

Presently, KCA University trains over 15,000 students annually within the faculties of:
