Our Mission Statement

Creating job creators rather than job seekers through the provision of affordable, quality and empowering business and computer education and skills, using outcomes based training programmes.

Our Goals and Objectives

Providing affordable and quality computer and business training Bridging the gap between theoretical computer/business knowledge and practical experience in the world of work. Pursuing rigorous research in the labour market to ensure that our teaching programmes remain relevant to the priorities of employers. This would go a long way towards supplementing government's efforts of alleviating unemployment. Promoting students' business acumen and self-reliance by imparting project planning and implementation skills; this empowers students with the necessary skills to conceive their own business enterprises, thereby becoming job creators.

Our Commitment to Social Responsibility

As a responsible corporate citizen, Academy is sensitive and responds to the environmental needs around it. This is evident in our commitment to social responsibility programmes that reflect the fact that Academy is an educational institution attending to the most sensitive and vulnerable age-group. Academy recognises, supports and offers the following: Two (2) bursaries from each campus to needy and deserving students from disadvantaged backgrounds every year. HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns, seminars and workshops. This is in recognition of the fact that the HIV/AIDS pandemic is a scourge with unequalled magnitude in the history of mankind and hence needs concerted efforts to fight it. Career guidance and counseling to students.
