Welcome : Department of Educational Management


Welcome to the Department of Educational Management, the first of its kind in the Sub-Saharan Africa. The Department was established in 1976 following a tripartite agreement among the Federal Ministry of Education, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the University of Ibadan, in response to the need for Educational Administrators and Planners in Nigeria.   The agreement project code named Project NIR/75/103 was the first of its kind in Sub-Sahara Africa. The Department operates as a major specialist service unit in which it utilizes its faculties and technical capacities to provide necessary technical assistance to the Federal, State, and Local Governments and other private sectors for the improvement of the management of education nationwide.   In the pursuance of the above, the Department plays a pioneering role in the development and promotion of Undergraduate and Postgraduate works in Educational Management since its establishment. Further, it has been leading its kind in many Universities in Nigeria through the introduction of courses and programmes that meet the immediate and future national and international needs. The Department has been rendering commendable services through the intellectuals that have no equal in the field of Educational Management.
