University of Ibadan targets Africa's Top 5 status


University of Ibadan says institution will be ranked among Africa’s Top 5 universities

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka has declared his major challenge to be how to ensure that the institution is ranked among the top five universities in Africa in the next few years. He disclosed this while reacting to the recent ranking of the Nigerian universities which rank UI as number one.

He said: “This is do-able given the pedigree of Ibadan over the last 68 years. As we speak, we have perhaps the most highly developed Postgraduate School, with easily the largest number of Masters and Doctoral students in Sub-Saharan Africa.”

According to him, the University of Ibadan School of Business has been approved by the National Universities Commission, and it is set to take off soon with her flagship MBA programme, which used to be run by our Department of Economics”.
