The College of Management and Social Sciences is as old as when the University commenced academic activities in January, 2009. The College is made up of two major components – the Management Sciences consisting of the Departments of Accounting & Finance, Business Administration, and Economics; and the Social Sciences consisting of the Departments of Criminology & Security Studies, Peace & Development Studies, and International Relations and diplomacy.
The Handbook is an invaluable guide to all the Global Leaders of the College of Management and Social Sciences both old and new as it contains valuable information on the University and the College. It contains the code of conduct of academic requirements the University requires of any Global Leader. Hence, being in possession of such makes a Global Leader to be alive to his or her responsibility.
It is hoped that all the members of staff and Global Leaders of the College will find this Information very useful as an instrument for life success.
The Department of Social Science was created in 2011 when the former Department of Criminology and Penology, Economics, Peace and Development Studies, and Regional Integration and Diplomacy were merged to allow for optimal use of existing capacity. As the intakes into the programme increase over time, it will become expedient to allow each programme to become full fledge department again.
The Department of Management Sciences has the general objective of training Entrepreneurs, Marketers, Accountants, Business Administrators, Office and Human resources Managers who can play leadership roles in private and public organizations. Towards this end, the Department is committed to making its academic programmes qualitative and globally competitive. At present, the Department offers the B.Sc. Business Administration Degree programme and the B.Sc Accounting programme. Other programmes will soon come on stream.
The Department aspires to become a preferred destination for the training of professionals and practitioners in the management sciences. To this end, our lecturers work tirelessly to promote learning and understanding among students, by adopting world class teaching and research techniques.
