Programme Overview

Many applicants admitted into the MBA programme do not really need an MBA; they require real administrative training because majority of these applicants are not entrepreneurs or business-minded people with a desire to create wealth, champion new products, manage SME’s and/or be out there on the rock face of business management.

Often, however, many of these persons think of transitioning into the public or Not-for-Profit sector. As part of our strategy to explore the untapped human capital, the Department of Organization and Human Resource Management has carefully mounted this One-year generalist. MA programme to essentially satisfy applicants’ need for a higher/ second degree in general management/administration and offer real administrative training.

Objective is to provide administrators and others holding line management/ supervisory positions in a variety of sectors the opportunity to receive administrative training.
The aim is to provide skills in understanding and facilitating seamless administration of organizations and institution from office management through procurement/logistics; meeting management; to stakeholders management and public and public sector service delivery; as well as help build a core of professional administrative managers, since most administrators( including University administrators) often learn the practice on the job.

We also aim to redirect the flow of applicant traffic away from the MBA HR option, to a more focused programme that address the needs of many of those whose real aim is to acquire a higher degree in management and administration.
