  • To keep motivated staff in all academic, research and professional consultancy areas.
  • To alleviate the greater shortage of professional managers in the country by increasing the number of graduates with a good academic, behavioural and practical competence.

Generally, the department tries to meet the above-mentioned objectives by working hand-in-hand with other higher educational institutions, business and non-business organizations, the government, and the society.
