In His Words ...

The School of Business and Economics empowers the faculty with greater flexibility in developing different learning initiatives. Coupled with its small class size, professors can focus more on teaching and help students prepare for life outside the University. This has led to higher academic achievement culminating in job offers to almost all accounting seniors prior to graduation– Jean-Paul Tibonsou
