Philosophy

The philosophy underlying the study of Marketing, as a management science is to produce graduates with well developed theoretical, practical and innovative minds, self reliant and imbued with an enthusiasm to make their contributions to the development of Nigeria.

In addition, the Philosophy of the Department of Marketing is adopted from the overall philosophy of the University. The Department in all its undertakings is guided by the motto of the University which is “DECENCY IN EDUCATION AND MORALS”. The Department is geared to produce graduates with strong sense of responsibility and service to the community. Leadership qualities and professionalism in management practice, both in the public and private sectors, are therefore, emphasized in training of our graduates

Objective

The general objective of the Department of Marketing is to produce graduates who are able to assist in the solving of marketing problems in the public and private sectors of the economy. The specific objectives are :

  • Develop and improve students understanding of marketing at various stages of development.
  • Develop the student’s critical judgment, their ability to observe, understand, analyze and synthesize data on socio-economic problems using quantitative methods and techniques for value creation
  • Produce appropriate environment that enables the students to raise their level of creativity and promote the spirit of self reliance through marketing knowledge for entrepreneurship.
  • Create an atmosphere for desirable behavioural changes through marketing principles which would help to develop values that are in consonance with the national objectives such as hard work, probity, commitment, patriotism and discipline.
  • Isolate relationships among observable marketing data which will provide an explanation of various events and facilitate predictions of the reaction which are likely to occur in responses to changes in particular data. These principles guide empirical research in explaining actual market behaviour in the economy and in providing basis for economic policy.
  • Provide, through intensive teaching and in depth research, the needed high level manpower for our institutions of higher learning.
