The Business Administration program of the American University of Nigeria prepares graduates for success both in the global business environment and academia.


About the program

A team of top international academics and business leaders teach and supervise students providing a balance of intellectual, professional and industry-based knowledge and experience.

The Business Administration program of the American University of Nigeria focuses on entrepreneurship, innovation, contemporary business strategies, leadership and key business responsibilities. These are set forward in the context of the economic and social development needs of the African continent.

Benefits of the program

The PhD program provides graduate education in business administration to develop and deepen the spirit of in-depth questioning in the students for teaching, research, and management responsibilities in public and private sectors of national and global economies.

Our students graduate with advanced knowledge, skills and abilities that are firmly rooted in a rigorous curriculum which promotes engaged learning in critical thinking and analysis, decision-making, advanced management and marketing theory, problem solving, teamwork, communica- tion and leadership, etc.

Graduates from the program will enjoy careers in the private or public sector as academics, researchers, innovators, consultants, leaders of business enterprises, heads of non-governmental organizations and much more.

Programme Structure

  • It is important to note that while we value the need for students to actively undergo the coursework requirements of the program, we emphasize that satisfactory completion of coursework is not the primary objective of the PhD program. It is mandatory for each student to demonstrate mastery of the specific area of interest, write and publish quality articles in credible peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings; and produce a quality original disser- tation that contributes to the existing body of knowledge.
  • The program is rigorous but also provides flexible timing for busy professionals to advance their careers.
