The department of Business and Marketing is one of the pioneer departments established at the inception of the University in 1999. It started with a crop of 34 students offering courses in a variety of subjects that are designed to provide them with a holistic education within a framework of intellectual, moral, and ethical guidelines coupled with sound integration of faith and learning. These courses are essentially tailored towards the provision of the graduate with a variety of professional skills that are predominantly required for management and leadership roles in the business and commerce industry.

It is worthy of note to mention, however, that the department as currently constituted, had earlier existed in the confines of the erstwhile Ilishan campus of Andrew University, Michigan, USA, when it offered courses in Business Administration as a minor program for students who were then taking courses as major in Religion. This remained the arrangement until the formal inauguration of Babcock University, subsequent to its grant of a Federal government charter as a private University in 1999.

At the undergraduate level, the department offers courses in two major programs of study namely B.Sc. (Hons) Business Administration and B.Sc. (Hons) Marketing. The first sets of graduates in the programs were produced as part of the University’s Alpha Graduands in May, 2003. The nineteenth set of graduates of the B.Sc. (Business Administration) and B.Sc. (Marketing) programs were produced at the University’s convocation in June 27, 2021. Report and feedbacks obtained about graduates of the programs, who have either gained employment, or proceeded to higher studies, have been quite satisfactory and encouraging. Over the years, the department has enjoyed tremendous support from major practitioners and multinational conglomerates in the business industry in the country.

The mission of the Department of Business Administration and Marketing is to prepare men and women for professional careers in business and related disciplines by providing basic programmes in the various areas suited to entrepreneurship, the needs of the industrial sector, and the requirements of the society at large, within the context of high moral Christ-like character and to ensure ethical standards in behaviour.

Candidates must have obtained 5 credits at not more than two sittings in five subjects including English Language, Mathematics, Economics and any two relevant social science subjects at SSCE or GCE Ordinary Level. A pass in Economics may be considered provided the candidate has a credit pass either in Accounting, Commerce or Business Methods.
