According to the Director of the CDeL, Prof. Boniface Nwogu, the second phase of the programme would cover courses in Social Sciences, Computer Science and Mass Communication at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. “We have already developed programmes for the courses and very soon we will re-invite NUC for the accreditation of the programmes,” he said.

The Director that noted the instructional materials also included recorded video lectures stored in tablets and CDs which would be given to the students, saying: “We have a programme that no other existing MBA in this country can be compared with.” According to him, the commencement of the MBA programmes marked the transition of the university from a single mode institution to a dual mode institution, which is the first of its kind in the entire South-East and South-South geo-political zone of the federation.
