Frequently asked questions

Will I have access to the Abuja campus facilities?

What equipment will I need for this programme?

You must have consistent access to a desktop computer or laptop to participate in this programme. Although we offer a mobile app to help you learn on the go, some features of online courses may not be compatible with mobile devices. Your computer should have the following features and specifications:

  • 2 Ghz or faster processor
  • At least 4 GB RAM (8 GB recommended)
  • Webcam
  • Microphone
  • Speakers or headphones

You will also need consistent access to the internet throughout the duration of this programme.


Can I apply if I don’t live in Nigeria?

The programme is open to international applicants, but all students are encouraged to ensure they are able to travel to Abuja at least once during the 18-month programme. International students are required to submit official English translations of their transcripts during the application process.

Can I apply if I don’t have much work experience?

This programme is designed for working professionals with significant management experience, so all applicants must be able to prove that they have at least five years’ work experience. If you don’t meet this requirement, consider exploring our range of short courses, as some of these address similar topics to courses included in the EMBA programme.

Do I have to be a certain age to apply?

The minimum age for application is 18, but as we require that our candidates have at least 5 years’ work experience and a bachelor’s degree, the typical participant for this programme is older than 25.

What is the difference between an MBA and an EMBA?

While both MBA and EMBA programs offer valuable business education, the key distinctions lie in their target audience, program structure, and emphasis.

Traditional MBA programs are designed for early to mid-career professionals who may have limited work experience or are looking to pivot into management roles. These programs typically attract a diverse range of students from various industries and backgrounds.

EMBA programs are tailored for experienced professionals with significant work experience. EMBA students are typically mid to senior-level managers, executives, or entrepreneurs who want to enhance their leadership skills and advance their careers without interrupting their work commitments.

Do I have to attend classes on campus in Abuja?

This is a hybrid programme designed for working professionals, so we don’t require students to come to campus frequently. While it is possible to attend classes in-person on campus, students also have the option to attend classes remotely using conference call technology.
