As the new Director of the University of Port Harcourt Business School (UPBS), I am delighted to welcome you to University of Port Harcourt premium Business School.
UPBS is located at Plot F/24 B1, Chinua Worlu Drive, off Sani Abacha Road, GRA Phase III, Port Harcourt.
UPBS is a multi-purpose school of excellence designed for learning and teaching, research and engagement with the business community through cross-disciplinary, multidisciplinary and collaborative education.
Senior personnel in both the public and private sectors of the economy are enabled to maintain, improve and broaden their professional knowledge and skills, advance their careers and bolster their employability. Education for use is the hallmark of our programmes. Thus, we are committed to ensuring that our academic programmes add value for our graduates by giving new inspiration, intellectual stimulation and fresh perspectives that allow them to see Nigeria, nay the world, and their organizations in new perspective.
We currently offer Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) programmes in the major functional areas of management science (Accounting; Finance and Banking; Management; Marketing), but also offer a wide array of innovative programs in Healthcare Management, Security Management, Entrepreneurship, etc. Other exciting programmes are planned to meet the needs and tight schedules of busy executive. We officer weekend and weekday options for the Executive MBA or PGD programme. In the weekend option, classes are offered on Friday evening and all day Saturday, while in the weekday option, classes are offered two days a week. These programmes last a minimum of 12 months.
We also offer a modular MBA programme which comprises twelve modules that must be completed before graduation. The modular MBA can be completed in a minimum of 24 months.
The academic staff of UPBS is drawn from the University Community and from industry. As a matter of deliberate policy, over 60% of the staff is from outside the Nigeria university system, to ensure that students are equipped with appropriate and relevant knowledge, practical skills and techniques, contacts and relationships necessary to drive them to the top of their professions and the highest levels of global management.
We invite you to visit the University of Port Harcourt Business School and see for yourself how we are creating a vibrant teaching and learning environment for today’s and tomorrow’s business leaders.
