The School of Business and Administration’s role is to train exceptional public administrators, directors and leaders who can be part of the answer.The aim of our program is to set the standard for quality. Our curriculum is a careful blend of theory and practice and gives a foundational knowledge base of each of the disciplines before specialized skills, tools, and techniques can be explored. The curriculum aims at producing graduates with advanced analytical and conceptual capabilities. The academic staff within the School of Business and Administration has extensive theoretical and practical experience in their respective fields of specialties. The School of Business and Administration is continually evolving to meet the growing needs of students by creating new programs.
