Christopher university begins academic session
All is now set for the commencement of academic activities at Christopher University, Mowe, Ogun State for the 2015/2016 session this month. The university is taking off with three faculties – business studies, humanities and social sciences.
According to the institution, students can, however still purchase admission forms at all designated centres across the country.
“Our projection is to make a mark and impact in the education sector, Nigerian business environment, on government’s policies and also to distinguish ourselves as a university that lays emphasis on the practical aspect of human life. We intend to partner the private sector to train graduates that will be able to appreciate the environment, understand not only local challenges, but also foreign issues and also be able to adapt both foreign and local methodologies to solve issues in our local environment,” said pioneer vice chancellor, Professor F. N. Ndubuisi.
He added, “The university was established to fill a gap in the educational sector in Nigeria in the area of grooming young graduates to practically harness the critical input of human, material and financial resources. It has been strategically located to serve not only students from Lagos and it’s environ, but also students from every part of Nigeria, Africa, America and Europe. The university is taking off with three faculties – business, social sciences and humanities. Our immediate plan is to concentrate on these areas because we feel that there is a vacuum in these areas hence one of the numerous reasons for the establishment of the university.
Chancellor/Chairman, Board of Trustees, Dr. Christopher Ezeh, stated that, “We have assembled an array of the best teaching staff that will be the envy of other universities in a very short time in the life of the institution, and of course the location of the institution is also a good factor because parents can easily visit their students here and get the same advantage they won’t find if they study overseas or elsewhere.”
He further advised the government to always give attention to the education sector by allocating a good percentage of the nation’s yearly budget to the sector.
