NUC okays NOUN’s master’s degrees in Business, Public Admin

January 27th, 2019

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved for the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) master’s degree programmes in Business Administration and Public Administration.

This followed the release of an accreditation exercise carried out by the regulatory body for postgraduate programmes of the university. Both programmes have received full five-year accreditation.

A statement made available to The AUTHORITY in Abuja by the University’s Director, Media and Publicity,  Ibrahim Sheme, quoted a communication received by the NOUN Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu, dated 15th January, 2019, where the NUC informed  the institution it could now run the two postgraduate programmes fully.

The NUC accredited the university’s MSc Business Administration at 88.7 percent  and MSc Public Administration at 89.5per cent.

It would be recalled that the two programmes were put on hold in 2016 with a view to re-organise and review the administration of the programmes to meet the NUC’s Benchmark Minimum Academic Standard (BMAS).

“Having carried the initial resource verification exercise by the regulatory body, the NUC sent its accreditation team to the university in September, 2018 to appraise the programmes and confirm their viability.

“The latest clean bill of health on the programmes has strengthened the programmes that are already on-going since the resource verification exercise in 2017,” the statement added.
