Our unique Jesuit approach to learning sets us apart from other higher institutions of learning:
We believe that education goes beyond building an academically sound person – we aim to educate a human person of competence, compassion, commitment and conscience through human centred development which is at the core of our vision and mission.
Every student is important to us and we endeavour to provide the highest level of learning to each one through an individualised approach to learning and group dynamics – We will not leave anyone behind! This fundamental value is evidenced by our low lecturer:student ratio.
We are firmly grounded on the Jesuit pedagogy and endeavour to impart ethical moral values to all our students. Our mandate is to produce upright young men and women who are capable of adding undisputable value to industry and to nations as a whole.
We offer high-impact programs that are delivered through practical-based and problem-based learning. Through strategic partnerships with various organisations, we also ensure that our programs are relevant to industry.
