The National Universities Commission, (NUC), has approved the establishment of the University of Abuja Business School to run both Master in Business Administration (MBA) and Executive Master in Business Administration (EMBA).
The Commission, in a letter to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, said the approval was given after a panel of experts on resource verification certified the University fit to run the programmes.
The letter which was signed by the Commission’s Director of Academic Planning, Dr N.B Saliu, read in part, “The Vice Chancellor is please invited to recall that a resource verification visit was carried out by a panel of experts to the proposed Business School of the University with a view to assessing the human and material resources available for its establishment.
“I am directed to inform you that the Executive Secretary has considered and approved the establishment of the Business School for the purpose of running the following programmes (Master in Business Administration and Executive Master in Business Administration) in the Main Campus with effect from the 2019/2020 academic session.”
The Commission enjoined the University to provide adequate human and material resources for the development and growth of the approved programmes.
