The students of Management Sciences at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State, have appealed to the Federal Government to restore management courses in the institution.
Two years ago, the government issued a directive to the Nigerian Universities Commision and the Joint Admission Matriculation Board to delist management sciences from specialized universities such as FUNAAB.
One of the students, Babajide Ajisafe, said many students have been denied admission opportunity to study in the school since 2016.
“Since 2016 that Federal Government ordered NUC to delist management courses at FUNAAB and only permitted courses in the areas of Agriculture, admission seekers have been denied several opportunities,” Mr Ajisafe said. It is important to note that thousands of students and graduates, who would have not been able to fulfil their academic ambitions, have benefited from the existence of Management Science courses at the school”
Another student, Timilehin Ogunyemi said: “Since the inception of College of Management Sciences, the university has graduated thousands of students in Accounting, Banking and Finance, Economics, Business Administration and Entrepreneurial Studies and all these courses had been fully accredited by NUC until 2016.”
The students, however, said available feedback from employers to the college and the association had shown that many graduates of Management Sciences from FUNAAB are doing very well in their chosen careers as some are already employers of labour through the practice of agriculture in large scale and other agro-related businesses.
