Q.There are other professional and business schools and colleges in Nigeria, why EGBEC again?

A. At the foundation of every conflict, there is a phenomenon called poverty. It could be poverty of stomach,poverty of access, poverty of ideas, poverty of knowledge, poverty of trust and poverty of alienation from civilized organisations. In a country like ours, from independence till date, we have been unable to resolve the issue of the wide and ever-expanding gap between the haves and haves-not in term of not only wealth but also opportunity.
The challenges of opportunity to climb the scale of economic and social ladder of the society, as well as opportunity to live long and be allowed to express your talent, that you cannot go to school or learn what will be useful to you and your society or that you are not allowed access to opportunities owing to discrimination, and you have no income because you are not employed and as such confronted with hunger, lack of access to basic healthcare and other good things of life. These are all forms of poverty. The most effective antidote to poverty is wealth creation through well structured first-class entrepreneurship training that is capable of guaranteeing not only poverty eradication but also sustainable development.
A person needs more than brainpower to run a business, he needs vocational and managerial skills. These are skills that determine the difference between success and failure in business. EGBEC is conceptualized and structured to offer the perfect blend of innovation,vocational or trade skills and all inclusive business and entrepreneurial management package for long-term poverty eradication (wealth\creation) thereby converting jobseekers into employers.
Our Skills Acquisition and Enterprise Creation (SAEC) programme grooms prospective professional entrepreneurs not only in innovation or vocational skills but also in enterprise Acreation through the scientific process of creative and innovative culture building: preparation, incubation, illumination and execution.

Q. Are there special believes or body of best practices that EGBEC subscribe to?

A. Yes EGBEC has a set of believes which our students and staff are required to subscribe to. The believes of EGBEC are state below:
  • EGBEC welcomes and encourages a wide pluralism of views and methods among its lecturers. But in order to carry out its mission, EGBEC also wants to ensure a basic coherence among all aspects of the teaching imparted in the School.
  • At EGBEC, the fundamental unifying factor is provided by the Christian vision of man, society and economic activity - a view that can be shared by all people who, independently of their religious beliefs, recognise a spiritual dimension in human beings. This vision and the values that accompany it are conveyed to participants in our programmes not only through the ideas espoused in the classroom but also through the personal example of all EGBEC staff. Accordingly, it is a condition of employment in EGBEC to avoid any discrepancy between one’s public lifestyle, actions and - in the case of lecturers - teachings and the fundamental tenets of full gospel Christian doctrine as officially taught by the Eden Global Christian Centre and any organization or body to which we subscribe by membership or association.
  • The educational and discipleship mission of Eden Global Christian Centre, takes responsibility for guaranteeing that the Christian vision actually underlies all teaching, publishing, research and other activities of the College. The Dominionpower International Leadership Academy,DILA and International Institute of Revival of Thunderingvoice Apostolic Ministry(TEAM) offer excellent opportunity for Discipleship,Ministry,Missions and Christian Character formation training and certification to those members of staff and participants in EGBEC programmes who freely wish to receive it.
  • EGBEC is a non-denominational institution in which people of many different religious beliefs can and do work together as members of faculty, administrators and participants in its programmes for as long as they can conscientiously agree with the following basic principles
    • Human beings are moral beings whose behaviour is not mechanically determined by either internal or external factors and who cannot attain fulfilment if they restrict their activity to the pursuit of their own individual interests.
    • The purpose of business organisations is not restricted to generating profit for their owners nor can the objective of maximising profit be the supreme standard of decision. Business organisations are members of larger societies and must contribute to their common good. The activities of business organisations must also be compatible with - and contribute to - the full human development of those who work in them.
    • Business organisations are not mere production units. First and foremost they must be human communities where all have an opportunity to participate and contribute responsibly to the common good of the organisation and that of society.
    • Business organisations are not justified in creating and marketing products or services by the mere fact that a demand for them exists or can be created. The value of the organisation's activity ultimately depends on its serving authentic human needs and values.
    • Business organisations must respect the dignity of all the human persons (employees, customers and suppliers...) with whom they relate in the exercise of their activity. A person's dignity is not respected when one chooses to harm him or her, even if this is done as a means to attain some desirable objective. When harm to a person results as a collateral effect of an action which pursues other objectives, the dignity of the person harmed is not respected if that action has been performed without a serious, proportionate reason.
  • The following principles guide the teaching activity of EGBEC:
    • Decisions are taken in a collegial manner.
    • Work in EGBEC is based on teamwork among persons and among departments. Participation is encouraged at all levels of decision-making.
    • Authority is conceived as a service to society and to all members of the School, and is exercised in a way that is respectful of the dignity of subordinates. EGBEC seeks to foster the full professional and human development of its employees by creating avenues and opportunities for it.
    • The staff of EGBEC are people with personal integrity, spirit of service, spirit of hard work, civic responsibility and love for freedom. They are hired and promoted on the basis of these qualities and of their potential or actual contribution to the development of EGBEC.
    • In so far as it may be compatible with its primary mission, EGBEC will try to help other voluntary projects which serve the common good of the Nigerian society through contributions of money, personnel, consultancy services, etc.
    • EGBEC is a social concern. Any surplus resulting after covering its own costs and making appropriate contributions to other voluntary projects and associated ministry projects will be re-invested in the School.
  • The following principles guide the teaching activity of LBS:
    • It is a basic aspect of EGBEC' mission to form world class socially responsible managers and leaders by placing special emphasis on business ethics. All lecturers share in the responsibility to try to inculcate ethical professional principles in the participants in EGBEC programmes in strict conformity with IPMA code of conduct.
    • Participants in EGBEC programmes are encouraged to understand the management profession as an opportunity of service to society and to the other members of the organisations in which they work.
    • The greatest respect is accorded to the freedom and convictions of each participant in EGBEC programmes. Accordingly, within the framework of the common beliefs spelt out in this document, a diversity of view-points and of possible solutions to problems will be welcomed and positively encouraged by the faculty in all programmes.
    • It is in keeping with the spirit of respect for the freedom of all and with the promotion of careful and impartial research that party politics are totally avoided within EGBEC. On a personal basis and acting outside EGBEC, staff are free to be members of any political organisation of their choice and defend their political ideas.
    • EGBEC faculty will always encourage and demand hard work and high professional standards from participants in EGBEC programmes.
    • Academic staff will give priority to their teaching duties and will strive to make time available in order to provide personalised attention to participants.
    • EGBEC will strive to make it possible that all persons who have the necessary intellectual and human qualities may be able to participate in its programmes irrespective of their economic means and of considerations of race, tribe, sex, ideology and religion.
  • The following principles guide the research activity of EGBEC:
    • EGBEC will promote, especially, research that is relevant to the problems facing African societies and will give priority to work which aims to develop concepts and techniques appropriate for the African environment and likely to have a real impact on professional management practice in Africa.
    • Interdisciplinary co-operation among lecturers, across departments and with other research institutions inside and outside Nigeria will be fostered.

EGBEC is a non-denominational institution where people of varying religious beliefs can and do work together as members of the same community, so long as they conscientiously agree to certain principles which include:
