*University Pro-Chancellor, Engr. Abba Commends MIU Management As NUC Grants Full Accreditation Status To Institution*.


National Universities Commission (NUC) has recently granted full accreditation status to all the academic programmes of the Faculty of Management and Social Sciences that were visited in the last accreditation exercise. One of the academic programmes got interim approval.

The approval was conveyed by the Report on Accreditation Academic Programmes in Nigerian Universities communicated to the University by the supervisory agency in a letter no. NUC/ES/412/VOL.14/361 dated 6th June, 2024.

The Pro Chancellor Eng. Abba, thanked the University management, especially the Head of Academics Prof. Alam Mahtab, for their effort in keeping to the standard of the University.

He further urged them to continue the tempo so as to secure the full accreditation of all the other programmes in the next accreditation exercise coming up in October.

The Academic programmes with full accreditation were the Departments of Accounting 84.2%, Finance 83%, Entrepreneurship 83.3% and Economics 92.6 %, while the Department of Public Administration had 73.3% getting interim approval.

The Commission drew the attention of the University Management that academic programmes that obtained full accreditation status will be eligible for another accreditation exercise after five years, with interim status the programme will be eligible for accreditation after two years.

The National Universities Commission undertook the accreditation exercise from October to November 2023 after issuing the University with provisional license in 2021.

This is the first accreditation exercise and the University garnered 80% which is highly commendable and kudos to the current Management and the University Proprietors.

Universities that are denied accreditation status will face immediate ban on students’ admission into such programmes, certificates issued to students admitted into the ban programmes will not be recognised and will be denied call-up into National Youth Service Corps scheme.
