Mission and Vision
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the School of Business, Covenant University. The School is one of the two Schools in the College of Business and Social Sciences. The School of Business has three Departments running six Programmes.
The programmes are: Accounting, Banking and Finance, Business Administration, Entrepreneurship, Industrial Relations/Human Resources Management and Marketing. The programmes are run both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. There is also the MBA programme which is a School-wide professional programme with inputs from all Deparments in the School as well as Economics Department. The courses are quite rich and meet the guidelines and benchmark minimum academic and professional standards of the National Universities Commission and other relevant professional bodies. The School has responsibility for the overall coordination of teaching, research and community development in the various Departments. The Board of Regents expect that the School, will by this responsibility, contribute to enhance the status of academic excellence and other activities in the University.
The underlining philosophy of the School of Business is in consonance with the Vision of the University: to be a leading world class Christian Mission University committed to raising a new generation of leaders in all fields of human endeavour. This philosophy represents a paradigm which shifts the University’s education policy from a ‘content based’ structure to a ‘knowledge based’ structure in which Core Values are emphasized.
The vision of the School of Business is: raising a new generation of leaders with globally competitive business education and capable of building capacity for the 21st century entrepreneur and executive leaders in the public, corporate and not-for-profit sectors of Nigeria, in particular and Africa, in general.
To achieve the Vision, the mission of the School is to produce time tested, ethical and professionally competent world class business and finance managers who will be at the forefront of driving the required financial and business management strategies toward the attainment of the global Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Nigeria’s Vision 20: 2020 and beyond.
