Department of Business Management

MESSAGE BY THE HEAD OF DEPARTMENT

My very dear students

You are welcome to the Department of Business Management in particular and the Faculty of Management Sciences in general. You are embarking on a journey of your academic life which subsequently will form the foundation of your professional career. Do not look back until you have captured the Golden Fleece.

Your decision to choose Business Management as a course is probably one of the best decisions you have so far made in your youthful life. It is a good course and that is why millions of Nigerians struggle every year to be given the opportunity to study it.

However, your decision to choose the course is not enough. To really reap the fruits of the course, you must also prepare yourself for what it takes to benefit from studying Business Management. You must therefore bear in mind the following:

1. You must always remember that you are in a professional department being trained as a potential manager of tangible and intangible resources.

2. In keeping with Management professional code of conduct, you must always be of good behaviour and imbibe the values of integrity, handwork, and discipline.

3.  You should also learn to appreciate the fact that Management as a discipline encompasses many other disciplines and transcends any imagination of a static concept.

You will be exposed to the tenets of the course during the four or three years you are expected to be in the department. Apply yourself fully to the course so that, together, we shall achieve the desired objectives.

Once again, you are welcome and best wishes.

 

Dr. Dennis Ayaga
Head of Department
