The School of Management came into being in 2000/2001 academic session. It consists of two departments: Management and Information Technology. At that time economics was one of the four programmes being run under department of management. However, in 2004/2005 academic session department of Management was splitted into two departments: Economics and Management. At that time department of economics was running the following programmes: Economics, Accounting, Banking and Finance. Then in 2005/2006 Economics became a single entity with the establishment of full fledge department of accounting and the transfer of banking and finance to management. The separation facilitated rapid development of the Economics Department because new members of staff have been appointed into the department while there are other senior members of staff either as visiting lecturers or on sabbatical leave
