Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) is a fast emerging phenomenon in Nigeria that today forms the bedrock of our nation’s economy. As essential as SMEs to the Nigerian marketplace, they are the most endangered business segment in sub Saharan Africa.

This is largely due to the high adult illiteracy rate in Nigeria. Most SMEs in Nigeria are owned people with minimum education, talk less of basic business administration education. This factor is by far the most probable reason SMEs stagnate and even fail eventually due to traditional and poor business administration practices that has been transferred down from old to the younger generations.

Highlighting the age long trading style of merchants from south eastern Nigeria – in which a young person serves a master for a stipulated period and is released afterwards and settled. As crude as this method is in today fast globalization, it is noteworthy to state that this method has spun SMEs of diverse sizes and valuations over the years. Unarguably effective, these practice requires immediate upgrade, for the SMEs birthed by it to remain relevant and competitive in today marketplace.

Access to capital remains the biggest challenge of SMEs today. However, SMEs are faced with new challenges that are largely covert in nature. The lack of basic business administration education is number one on the list.

As an institute committed to providing world class training and skills development programs to company and business administrators, we are poised to improve the quality of basic business administration skills of SMEs operators and owners, enhance traditional business administration styles and systems.
