ABOUT CHRISTOPHER UNIVERSITY
The Promoter of the Christopher University, Translucent Management Services, has for many years noted the yawning gap that exists between industry and the academia, and has, at various times, successfully established very strong and robust linkages between the private sector and the academia with emphasis on capacity building and management training. This stride constitutes a very strong motivation for the establishment of a university, with strong emphasis on Management sciences, with linkages with corporate world, locally and internationally. This shall facilitate close collaboration and consultation between academia and industry in the development and establishment of high level management training programs relevant to the immediate and future manpower needs of the corporate world and the public sector.
In venturing into this great task, the promoter abreast of the educational terrain, noting its shortcomings in human and capital development, the challenges of business and management in the contemporary global knowledge economy felt compelled to intervene with a view to establishing a first class institution that will train students, who upon graduation, shall be imbued with the requisite skills, knowledge and competencies to fit into industry and public sector in any part of the globe and be key players in their various fields of specialization.
The gap, between the burning ambition, of many Nigerians for quality university education and the few spaces available for them to realize their ambitions and fulfill their aspiration provide further impetus for the establishment of Christopher University, as contribution to national effort, aimed at enhancing access to quality university education at a location close to Lagos, a melting point and the Nation's commercial / Industrial nerve centre.
The responsibility of meeting the objectives of Christopher University is vested in the Planning and Implementation Committee (PIC), made up of men of integrity, skills and experience.
