Master

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Earning a Master requires two years of education after earning a Bachelor. This advanced degree may help students to achieve their educational and professional goals, as the rigors of a Master’s program help train students in the skills and knowledge they need to land the career of their dreams.

 

To gain admission into the Nigerian universities (both public and private universities are in every state of the federation including the FCT), a prospective student has to sit for and successfully pass the UME(Universities Matriculation Examination) which is administered by JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board). Also individual universities regularly screen prospective candidates to make sure they are up to par for university level work in Nigeria.

Marketing Philosophy Marketing is the lifeblood of business. Every activity in business involves costs and it is only when one of the many functions - selling is performed that revenue accrues to an enterprise. This places Marketing in the very central position in every business. The premier position of Marketing in industry has been recognized, and establishments that do not give this vital business function its appropriate place pay the price for this failure with relative underdevelopment and vulnerability. Marketing has become even more important as technology and industrialization leap forward daily, with the resultant large scale production in anticipation of demand. One of its functions is to identify, anticipate and satisfy needs. With the increasing sophistication in computerization and quantification, scientific purchasing and management of materials in industry are imperative. These developments justify and indeed compel the establishment of the programme in Marketing. Objectives of the Programme The Postgraduate Programme in Marketing of the Department of Marketing, Enugu State University of Science and Technology aims at producing graduates equipped with the ability to influence the production of goods and services that satisfy (at a profit to the enterprise), the changing needs of individuals and groups in society. The Postgraduate Programmes in Marketing consist of the Postgraduate Diploma (PGD), the Master of Business Administration (MBA), the Master of Science (M.Sc.) and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA PROGRAMME The Postgraduate Diploma Programme has been specially designed for graduates and executives with deficiency or lack of previous professional knowledge in Marketing in order to equip them with the modern Marketing knowledge. It is also to prepare graduates with some deficiencies to fit adequately into the M.Sc. Marketing programme. A Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing is a recognized qualification for the practice of Marketing and for occupying high and responsible Marketing and business positions in Banking, Insurance, academic and governmental institutions and industries. Graduates of the PGD programme in Marketing should posses the ability to analyze and forecast the economic trend, understand and appreciate the presence of the consumer, and work effectively within the legal framework of society in which goods and services are produced and distributed. The programme does not only aim at producing graduates who will function as managers in commerce, industry, and government, but even more so, entrepreneurs who will be self-employed as well as employers of labour. It is expected that enterprising firms, organizations, and academic institutions would take advantage of the Diploma course to provide short-term (but very vital) Marketing training for their personnel. Objectives of the Programme: The specific objectives of the programme are: To expose students to fundamental courses in Marketing needed for the advanced M.Sc in Marketing programme. To teach students the process of investigative science needed to explore theoretical and practical problems in Marketing. To update students with deficient knowledge in the field of Marketing and other cognate business courses needed to understand and analyze Marketing problems. DURATION OF THE PROGRAMME The programme lasts a minimum of two semesters. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Provided the matriculation requirements are satisfied; Five credit passes including English Language and Mathematics at the 'O' Level.

Geography & Meteorology Introduction The global Environment Question came into Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) as a technological issue with the creation of the faculty of Environmental Sciences in 1985. In 1991 the faculty set up an Environmental Management programme for the principal aim of developing and training specialist Environmental Managers and monitoring the environment. After the 1992 summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the programme progressed beyond the common, 'what of the Environment' to ask how, where, when, why and eventually the bigger WHAT of the environment questions, which are more pertinent to environmental management and survival. It is known that food production and water resource development, industrialization and urbanization are essential elements of human existence, which have profound impacts on our environment. In the interest of Environmental sustainability, we now design our specific objectives at the post-graduate levels to address six main questions, viz: How do we control and manage our environmental pollution and degradation? How do we respond to climate change problems? How do we farm and how do we industrialize and or Urbanize in environment friendly ways? Where do we urbanize? How do we manage our land, air and water resources? How do we manage man-environmental hazard relationships? To answer these questions, the crucial issue of the assessment of the environment comes into play. Thus we ask: How do we develop our environmental resources? What are the positive and negative impacts of resources development on the environment? How do the economist, sociologist, psychologist, physical scientist and the ecologist etc perceive our actions? How do we reduce environmental pollution, climate change, flooding and environmental degradation to achieve environmental sustainability? What do we do to substitute 'poverty' with general affluence through appropriate environmental management practices? These questions which are very crucial to Nigerians today for tomorrow constitute the foci of our researches. The researches are not only evaluative but also descriptive, designative, predictive and prescriptive regarding the above crucial environmental questions. We therefore adopt international outlook and approach. Environmental issues such as water and atmospheric pollution and climate change problems involve trans-national boundaries. The Department of Geography and meteorology provides the necessary undergraduate base for these advanced questions. Philosophy The fundamental philosophy underlying the programme is the training of graduates from a wide range of discipline and backgrounds to the highest academic standards in the identification and resolution of environmental issues. Vision The programme will produce skilled manpower, trained specifically for environmental surveillance, monitoring and management as against the present practices where these tasks were performed by people trained in basic and applied sciences. The academic programme is also designed to provide the training needed for an understanding of environment and build upon this foundation by exploring in some depths, specific aspects such as resources depletion, recycling, re-use and the impact of science and technology Aims and Objectives Postgraduate programmes in environmental Management and control are designed to : Increase the students understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of environmental issues. Provide sound specialized and effective practical oriented training of course work fieldwork and research in environmental monitoring, management and control. Provide high-level skilled manpower with both academic and professional competence for tackling environmental issues in all their ramifications. Programmes The postgraduate programmes ESUT has in environmental management and control are as follows: PGD Environmental Management and Control (PGD EMC) Master of Environmental Management and Control (Master of EMC)(Professional) M.Sc Environmental Management and Control (M.Sc)(Academic) Ph.D Environmental Management and Control (Ph.d.

Urban & Regional Planning Introduction Rapid population growth and the associated rapid rates of city growth coupled with technological changes have generated an increasing demand for planners on all aspects of human endeavours particularly in urban and rural areas of developing countries. The frightening rate of rural-urban migration and the concomitant physical, social, economic and cultural problems resulting from, or precipitated in urban areas calls for urgent need of planners with requisite academic, professional and technical skills and capacities to deal with such situations. On the other hand, the rural areas of Nigeria suffer from declining youth population, skilled manpower, finance, modernization of decaying agricultural production infrastructure and the much needed social amenities to cater for needs of over 70% of the country's population. These scenarios call for concerted efforts on part of government and universities to initiate new programmes as well as, redesign existing ones to meet the ever changing needs and challenges of sustainable national, physical and socio-economic development. The role of planners in this regard cannot be over-emphasized. Nigeria is in direct need of planners to help manage urban and rural spaces or areas. At the moment, competent academically and professionally trained planners are indeed only produced in very few Nigerian universities. The shortage of professional planners must be stemmed if chaos is to be mitigated in urban and rural spaces. This is why the department of Urban and Regional Planning Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) has seized the challenge given by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to reform its postgraduate programs to achieve demands for national development and international best practices. Graduate Diploma and Degrees The postgraduate programmes in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning are designed to meet the needs of both full-time and part-time students intending to become effectively involved in socio-economic and physical development planning profession in an ever dynamic environment such as Nigeria. Urban and Regional Planning is eclectic in scope and this is why the programmes are made sufficiently broad-based and flexible to bestride complementary environmental design and planning disciplines. This ensures that whilst meeting the general requirements of the Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP) and the Town Planners Registration Council (TOPREC) on one hand and National Universities Commission (NUC) on the other, the programmes incorporate much of the social science-oriented urban and regional planning theory and methodology that normally lie beyond the scope of a town planning programme(s). To ensure their relevance and sustainability, experienced and competent planning experts, particularly urban and regional planners, both on full-time and part-time employment are made to man these programmes. These programmes are designed with a view to giving due weight to theory and practice through lectures, seminars, computer applications, studio demonstrations and field investigations. It is recognized that while enough premium should be placed on the practical aspects of the learning process, a rigorous theoretical foundation is very desirable for both studio and fieldwork. Philosophy the philosophy of the Postgraduate Urban and Regional Planning Programmes in ESUT, is built on intellectual leadership and the preparedness to confront spatial and environmental challenges. Hence each programme focuses on details providing practical training geared towards the effective planning and development of Nigeria cities, towns, villages and their surrounding regions in order to achieve national objectives in planning and development. Goals and Objectives The goal of the programmes is to produce planners registerable with NITP/TOPREC who are both academicians and core professionals. Against this background, the graduate degree programmes are designed with the goal of increasing the ability of students/participants to prepare regional, urban, town and village development plans by studying current practices and providing techniques for: Analysing and understanding how regions, cities, towns, and villages work and are likely to develop; Assessing the resources and constraints to effective planning and development; and Strengthening institutional capacities for the implementation of regional, urban, town and village development plans. Against this background, the following objectives predominate: To develop students' understanding of URP through the study of theories, methods and techniques for planning, designing and managing land use activities and environment; To assist the students to acquire constructive understanding of the social, economic, technological and legislative framework of society with the physical, social and economic processes in operation and, the potential capacities of the frameworks to make more coherent and relevant collaborative policy formulation and implementation; To provide students with varied practical experience of realistic planning problems; To encourage students to develop interest in planning skills and research methods; To contribute to the manpower requirements of the nation by educating and training of prospective planners and also offering of refresher courses to already registered planners through in-house/programme seminars, workshops and colloquium; and finally. To provide training and re-training programmes that will elevate sub-professionals to professional cadre of the discipline.

Objectives The main objectives of postgraduate studies in the University system is to further develop the spirit of enquiry in the graduate students through training in research in an atmosphere of intellectual independence and individual creativity combined with a strong sense of team work. In pursuit of this objective, teachers and students constitute of single team in a well defined and purposeful endeavour of human development. Following closely to this objective is the fostering, through instruction of a deeper understanding of elementary concepts and an increasing ability to apply fundamental ideas to new problems in the graduate student. The student in the postgraduate school must realize quite early that his/her intellectual growth and sub sequent successes are directly related to the depth of his/her command of basic principles and his/her ability to apply those principles. It is true that graduate studies are usually associated with a high degree of specialization; nevertheless such specialization must be achieved in the context of extending mental horizons, producing new orientations, and developing a depth of understanding in the relevant disciplines. Within the context of the above general objectives, Postgraduate Studies must pursue two particular objectives which are both academic and practical in orientation. Thus, they must seek to: provide training in research for those whose future careers will lie in teaching and research at University level, and for those who many have to operate in research and development environments in the public or private sectors, e.g. in government, commercial and industrial concerns; and Provide both short and long-term training facilities aimed at improving and upgrading the existing and potential high level manpower needed for planning, implementing and reviewing national development plans as well as improved productivity and performance in the private sector.
