To be announced


All of our courses are delivered in English. Our programmes are student-oriented, flexible and personalized. We use a combination of classroom theory and hands-on experiential learning that draws on both practices prescribed by the National Universities Commission (NUC), and OAU learning methodologies.

The OAUCDL’s pragmatic approach to this programme prepares students for careers in today’s rapidly evolving and globalized business world.


Students must attain a minimum participation score of 75% in all courses they are enrolled in to be seen as qualified to write the semester examinations.​

Academic Honesty

Academic honesty is a fundamental value in education. OAU CDL enforces a strict academic ethics code to which all students must adhere to. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to: plagiarism, attempted theft of academic records or examinations and alteration of grades. Any of these offenses will result in automatic failure of the course and/or expulsion from the programme.

Course Load

Programme course load is measured based on the particular programme area chosen by students


Assessment of participation in course discussions shall be automatically undertaken by the system, and Teaching Assistants are charged with keeping record of this. The quality of students’ responses to discussion questions and participation in reviewing discussion questions shall constitute the student’s Continuous Assessment which shall be of the same proportion as the corresponding on-campus programme.

Teaching Assistants engaged shall be responsible for the primary scoring of students while the Academic Advisers/Subject Matter Specialists shall supervise the assessment.

Graduation Requirements

In order to graduate, students must complete their overall programme with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 after undertaking all available courses. In addition, students of OAU CDL must submit and defend a final research project.
