History of the Department
Business Administration is one of the departments created in the Faculty of Management Sciences in February 2016 under the leadership of Vice Chancellor Professor Seth Accra Jaja. The department assumed the status of a degree programme with a total of 140 pioneer students and 7 Academic staff. Interestingly, the department has steadily progressed in student enrolment profile, staffing, facility acquisition and increasing its potentials in creating enabling environment for excellent academic pursuits. Dr. Timothy Obalade-Falade Adedapo was appointed the Acting Head of the department. Thereafter Dr. Donald O. Ewanlen was appointed as the second Head of department, and now Dr. Laguo Livingstone Gilbert as the current Head of Department.

More so, there are 100 students in 400 level, 93 in 300 level, 124 in 200 level and 108 in 100 level indicating that the department is on a steady part of development.
We are optimistic that our students will distinguish themselves and join hands to shape the corporate world.
