The Department of Business Administration started in 1966 with just 10 students pursuing the undergraduate degree programs in Business administration, with the first set of students graduating in 1970. It is located at the Kongo Campus of the University and was one of the four academic departments of the Faculty of Administration. Three other departments including Actuarial Sciences, Banking and Finance and Marketing were created from the department, which altogether form the current faculty ABU Business School together with the Departments of Accounting, Business Administration and Economics.
