NUC Grants MCIU Full Accreditation Status for all Programmes
Michael and Cecilia Ibru University has recorded another milestone in the validation of its academic programmes as the National Universities Commission (NUC), for the first time, approved all the programmes presented to the commission by the university for accreditation.
In a letter sent to the Proprietors by the NUC, the apex regulatory body for university education in Nigeria, it said all the five matured programmes presented to it by the university during last November/December accreditation evaluation exercise were successful.
The report’s breakdown revealed that in addition to the programs’ outstanding test results, the university’s Public Administration, Law, Software Engineering, Mass Communication, and Political Science programs each obtained full accreditation.
It should be recalled that the university achieved an unprecedented first-time, full accreditation in 2019 when NUC approved all nine of its mature academic programs and named it amongst the best in the country during that year’s accreditation exercise.
Michael and Cecilia Ibru University also placed second among privately held institutions in the South-South geopolitical zone in 2021 when the National University Commission ranked Nigerian universities using 12 criteria. It also placed third in efficiency, third in capital H-index, and third in knowledge economy.
The full accreditation status is valid for five years, per the letter transmitting approval, dated March 9, 2023, and signed by Arc. S.S. Ikani, Deputy Director of Programme Accreditation of the National Universities Commission.
The university’s other programs had already received full accreditation from the National Universities Commission and relevant professional bodies.
