Welcome to the Department of Finance

The Department of Finance, Faculty of Management Science, Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti is one of the oldest Departments in Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti Nigeria. The Department was established in 1985 under the Faculty of the Social Sciences as Department of Banking and Finance, which made it the first State owned University in Nigeria to have Department of Banking and Finance. I am glad to inform you that the Department has grown in leap and bounds over the years and it has not deviated from the vision and mission of its founding fathers to produce  high quality graduates that could compete favourably with their peers nationally and internationally. These vision and mission, the Department has been pursuing vigorously with the concerted efforts of qualifed academic staff that God endowed the Department with.

Presently, the Department is blessed with senior academics which make it a filler to sister institutions by offering both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to discerning candidates particularly those in academic institutions and candidates seeking higher degree qualifications in the field of International Finance, Public Finance, Corporate Finance, Finacial Institution Management, Insurance, Cooperative Studies and Rural Development. The Department has full accreditation in both her undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Thus, our current and prospective students stand to benefit and continue to benefit very immensely from the wealth of experiences of these highly respected, and internatonally recognised academic gurus.

It is equally worthy of note that the Department receives  recommendation letters regularly from ministries, industries and other parastatals in respect of our graduates; thus, providing feedback mechanism which indicates good performances of the Department via their numerous graduates in the labour market.

Based on the strength mentioned above, I warmly welcome you once again to the Department of Finance, Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria where quality education and moral upbringing is guaranteed.
