EXECUTIVE MBA IN TAXATION

1.1       PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy underlying the EXECUTIVE MBA TAXATION programme is that taxes are important for development and people must be trained on how to identify, generate and account for it. Individuals and organisations liable to pay taxes must comply with taxation laws. For Nigeria, oil has not been a blessing as the discovery of oil has misguidedly led to the abandonment of other natural resources and sources of revenue to the government. Good judgment suggests that Government must look for some more reliable and permanent sources of revenue. Government in 2007 embarked on extensive tax reforms designed to boost revenue from taxes. The Executive MBA Taxation is therefore designed to sharpen the skills of employees in senior management positions in government generally and the various Tax Authorities in particular for more effective performance in order to ensure enhanced tax revenue for the government. It exposes students to various aspects of Tax Administration in line with Laws of the land and with particular emphasis on the Tax Reform Programme of the Government.

 

1.2       OBJECTIVES

The specific objectives of the programme are;

  1. To expose students to both general and specialized courses in Taxation,
  2. To provide students the opportunity of obtaining practical experience to solve accounting problems with emphasis on Taxation.
  • To update the student’s knowledge of Tax generally and Tax Reforms in particular.

 

1.3       Admission is twice in a year, March/April and September/October.

 

1.4.      Mode of Study

The mode of study for the Executive MBA programme in Taxation shall be by course work, organizational case studies, seminars and project work reports.

 

1.5       Duration

The duration for the Executive MBA programme shall be four (4) semesters.

1.6       Employment Opportunities

The Executive MBA programme in Taxation prepares students to improve professionalism in business practices and entrepreneurship development. The programme equally trains them to fill middle and senior management positions in business, commerce, industry, and government. With their education and training, graduates of the MBA programme can set up their own businesses since the programme also emphasizes self-employment and consultancy.
