Faculty of Social and Management Sciences

Mission Statement

The Faculty of Social and Management Sciences seeks to provide quality education and training in various domains of the Social and Management Sciences. It provides professional and professionalized training in order that the products of the faculty satisfy human resource needs (as dictated by the market forces in the public and private sectors) or can create jobs for themselves.

One of its principal objectives is to equip its students with realistic methodologies that emphasise analytical skills and problem solving efficiency, based on a sound grounding on some current theoretical framework(s) in various professional models. The overall objective is to foster the development of research by way of individual, departmental or inter-departmental research projects geared towards solutions of identified national problems, while maintaining interest and active participation in theoretical research.
