  1. Thank you so I have benefited a lot from this platform.
    Please, can give out information on the cost of everything from prospectus to the least amount.

    Thanks for the good work.
    I have been kept abreast of all I need thanks to this blog. Please, can you share the cost of the program for part time from prospectus to the least amount. Thanks.

  3. On my dashboard, the only available dates are for 29th and 30th of December. I can’t see any for the 4th till the 8th of december. Is that a mistake from your part or its from them? Also, the fees for full time Masters in Business Administration could be posted

  4. I checked the portal to confirm the amount to be paid for tuition fee but there was no information.

    Can you please post the full tuition fee for MBA program,part time and for other programmes, so that people will benefit from it.

    If yes, I know payment can be done installmentally for Part time only . What amount is accepted by the school if payment will be done in instalments ?

    When is the session starting next year?

      1. From our dashboard are we to upload our original certificate and no need to forward transcript to spgs. Or all transcript must be forwarded to spgs despite upload of original certificate on our dashboard

        Documents for sighting during screening 👇

        You mentioned o level certificate for only MBA students only. What do you mean by that? Is it not applicable for postgraduate students? Please explain.

        For the reference letter, what should be the content? Should it be printed on plain paper or letter headed paper?

        Many thanks 🙏

  8. Please is it compulsory to have reference letter uploaded. I have done screening since last week Wednesday. I have not been able to generate payment advice. I lately understand that I did not click submit on my portal to submit the already uploaded documents, which I have done now. Please your response is highly valued.
