ABOUT CHRISTOPHER UNIVERSITY
The Proprietor of the Christopher University, Translucent Management Services, have for many years observed that a yawning gap exists between industry and the academia and have, at various times, successfully established very strong and fruitful linkages between industry and academia in the area of capacity building and management training. These experiences constitute a very strong motivation for the establishment of a specialized university with focus on training in the Management sciences in close proximity to many corporate organizations in the South-Western axis in Nigeria. This shall facilitate close collaboration and consultation between academia and industry in the development and establishment of high level management training programs relevant to the immediate and future manpower needs of industry and the nation at large.
In venturing into the great task of establishing a private university, the Proprietor having scanned the educational terrain in Nigeria and observed the gap between the desired quality of training, especially in the management sciences, and the quality of university graduates being produced in Nigeria who are expected to drive the innovations and face the challenges of business and management in the contemporary global knowledge economy, feel compelled to intervene with a view to establishing a first class institution that will train students who upon graduation, shall be imbued with the requisite skills, knowledge and competencies to fit into industry in any part of the global knowledge society and be key players in their various fields of specialization.
The gap between the aspirations of many Nigerians for quality university education and the few spaces available for them to realize their ambitions and fulfill their aspirations provides further impetus for the establishment of the Christopher University as contribution to national effort aimed at enhancing access to quality university education in Nigeria located in Ogun State and very close to Lagos, which is a melting point for all Nigerians and with the highest population and the highest population density, the niche exists for higher institutions of learning to cater for the ever increasing demand.

Responsibility for the preparation and for ensuring faithful implementation of the university law, Academic Brief and the Master Plan, to ensure the realization of the objectives and mission of the Christopher University is also vested in the Committee before its take-off.
