Overview

The Department of Estate Management offers a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Honours Degree in Estate Management. The Department was established at Covenant University’s inception in 2002 because the founding fathers of the University realized first that a developing country like Nigeria needs Estate Surveyors and Valuers to assist in providing, managing and carrying out improvements on buildings and infrastructure on the one hand, and in expanding urban property markets on the other hand. Secondly, that only few Universities in Nigeria offered the Estate Management Programme while many young graduates of Estate Management are mainly interested in practice. Thirdly, there is a need to create an atmosphere for the development of the total man, via the vehicle of education and pioneering mental productivity to produce a new generation of leaders and solution providers. Through this approach, the University has been able to raise leaders in the area of supervision, management and control of interests in landed property through education, training and research with total commitment to marketability, truthfulness, entrepreneurship and fear of God. This has been achieved through the inculcation of the seven Core Values of Covenant University in the students, thus enhancing the development of leadership qualities in the graduates.
