Through the distinctiveness and creativity of our students, excellence of our academic staff, intellectually rigorous research, we seek to inform business practice to make a difference to our community in Balyelsa State in particular and Nigeria in general. For example, through our research, we seek to create the latest understanding of how to grow organisations and manage people in a range of industries and business sectors. We will use our expertise to transform individuals, businesses and organisations through consultancy, training and local and international partnerships.
In terms of aspirations, our portfolio of undergraduate, postgraduate, short professional development programmes would have a strong international focus and would be constantly updated to give students the latest professional and research-based knowledge, and the best possible learning experience. We would have excellent links with industry and professional bodies both in Nigeria and further afield.
We would run a wide range of activities to support businesses in the Bayelsa State, nationally and beyond; and we would also offer customised management development programmes. We would, in essence, increase our influence across Nigeria and beyond through the research expertise of our academics and partnerships with local, national and international reputable schools.
