Overview of the Department

Firstly, Management is a crucial element in economic growth of a country. It brings together the factors of production: money, machinery, men, methods, markets and material to enable the country to experience economic development. A country with enough capital, manpower and other natural resources can still be poor if it does not have competent managers to combine and coordinate the resources. In the words of Drucker; “without management country’s resources of production remain resources and never become products”. Management is important for learners because of many reasons. Of which these are some:

? Our society depends on specialize institutions or organizations to provide us with goods and services.

? Organizations are guided by managers who allocate resources and have responsibility and authority to manufacture safe, to declare war or peace, to build cities, to keep the environment clean and so on.

Second, Managers create jobs on one hand and products and services on the other hand.

Additionally,the program is aimed at producing graduates that can have adequate knowledge, skills and attitude towards application of management concepts.

Lastly, the management program should enable the graduate to acquire both theoretical knowledge and practical know-how pertinent to management profession so that will be competent nationally and internationally. It should transfer employability skill in an ethical manner that can be mirrored through the cognitive ability, interpersonal skill, numeric skill and research working skill of the graduate.
