With this, Salem University is providing more course options to potential undergraduates whose search for placement into the university to study courses of their choice has become elusive. Also the post graduate programmes will provide an avenue for fresh graduates and those in employment to further gain top- notch skills and knowledge which will lead to gaining mastery of their jobs.
Similarly, the National Universities Commission has approved the commencement of part time degree programmes in Accounting, Business Administration and Computer Science. Consequently, the University officially commenced lectures in the different programmes. It will be recalled that Salem University was among the few private universities recently granted full operating licence by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
