The Faculty of Administration of Bingham University, Karu was formally carved out of the erstwhile Faculty of Humanities, Social and Management Sciences in November 2019. The Faculty of Humanities, Social and Management Sciences of Bingham University has existed since the inception of the university, which started in the 2005/2006 academic session. The Faculty of Administration has three Departments – The Department of Accounting, Business Administration and Entrepreneurship Studies. The Departments of Accounting and Business Administration were established in 2008, while the Department of Entrepreneurship commenced with the 2019/2020 Academic Session in September, 2019.
An adventure that began with few undergraduate students and three pioneer academic staff at inception has today birthed several Chartered and Professional Accountants; as well as seasoned Business administrators currently adding value to the Nation and the world at large. This exciting accomplishment is predicated purely on the ability of the products of the Faculty to compete with their peers from any other University in the world. This feat and the quality of teaching and research have been the drive to further birth the idea of Postgraduate Programmes of the Faculty. Today, the Faculty of Administration not only has five Postgraduate Programmes running, it is a Faculty sought for both in terms of graduate and Postgraduate Programmes, as ‘a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden’. The five Postgraduate Programmes of the faculty includes PGD in Accounting, PGD in Business Administration, MSc in Accounting, MSc in Human Resource Management as well as Masters in Business Administration (MBA). The Faculty’s Ph.D Programmes are at the final stage of approval from the NUC and will hopefully commence as from the 2020/2021 Session.
The primary emphasis of our Programmes is to prepare future leaders for successful professional careers in every sector of the economy and the Faculty of Administration recognizes that becoming successful products capable of adding value to the society at large, requires the ability to produce important research that expands the frontiers of knowledge. The curriculum of the various Departments in the Faculty are the result of a careful analysis and examination of other world leading institution’s graduate and postgraduate programmes and the emerging needs of the Finance world, Management, Government, Academics, Researchers and Business executives in the 21st century. The faculty uses creativity and innovation to develop compressive curricular and specialization courses, required of all graduate and postgraduate students.
