COMMENCEMENT OF POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMMES AT BAZE UNIVERSITY Peter UMOH*

The University is committed to running inclusive PG programmes however without compromising on academic standards. In this connection, we have applied to the NUC for approval to run several Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) Programmes which would allow their graduates to pursue our MSc and MBA programmes. We remain hopeful that the NUC will give early approval to our PGD applications so that candidates with Third Class first degrees and Higher National Diploma (HND) can pursue our MSc and MBA programmes on completion of the PGD. We have also sought approval from the NUC to expand our MSc offerings. Given the facilities and staff available in the University, the MSc in Accounting, Banking & Finance, Public Administration, Law and Computer Science are but some of the additional programmes we are ready to run and in which the public has shown interest. It is necessary to state here some of the admission requirements for the programmes we are currently running for the benefit of prospective students:Possession of “0” level with at least five credit passes in relevant subjects as determined by the Department of study. Possession of a first degree with second class lower division or first degree with Postgraduate Diploma or HND with Postgraduate Diploma. Transcripts and favourable referees’ report. NYSC discharge certificate. In addition to the above, an applicant may be required as a condition for admission, to undergo such test as may be prescribed by the Department or Departments of his/her proposed programme, or take such other prerequisites or concurrent studies and examinations as may be prescribed, subject to the overall control of the Post Graduate School Board. *Professor Peter Umoh is the Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic & Dean, Postgraduate School.
