The Faculty of Business and Management has two constituent schools – the School of Business & Management and the School of Hospitality. It offers a range of undergraduate and graduate programmes designed to produce graduates who have sound grounding in theory and practice. These graduates are infused with critical and creative thinking and well equipped to initiate innovative solutions. Our curriculum emphasises practical experience and exposure to the real world of business; such experience and exposure prepare our graduates to face the various problems and challenges that confront our economy and society at large. We strive to equip our graduates with essential managerial skills including the technical, interpersonal, entrepreneurial, and conceptual, which are necessary for them in order to engage the increasingly flat world and be cross-culturally sensitive and competent.
Since its inception in 2011, the faculty has invested significant amount of resources in various initiatives to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the faculty. The faculty has since recruited distinguished scholars to spearhead its educational and research endeavours. The initiatives include upgrading teaching and learning capabilities and facilities, greater access to e-resources, and creating greater opportunities for participation by our academic staff in various research projects of national and regional importance.
We resolutely believe that our students must complement classroom learning with actual on the job training and exposure. To that extent our resolve is to stress on industrial training, putting greater emphasis on continuous assessment based on carrying out hands-on projects as opposed to in-class examinations, and cultivating enduring ties with professional bodies and successful business organizations. Our collaborative efforts also include establishing relationships with prominent academic institutions of international repute.
We invite you to consider investing in your education at the Faculty of Business and Management. Let us equip you with leading-edge knowledge and tools, and hone your business and organizational skills. We believe that you must engage the increasingly knowledge-driven and complex world and build your future. Take up the opportunity and join us; let’s together develop the needed capabilities, candidly explore the world and develop initiatives to meet the challenges ahead. Together let us venture into a journey of building a better future for us – a world of resourceful community and limitless opportunities for growth, organizationally robust, and environmentally sustainable.
