Brief History

The Governing Council of the Polytechnic in conjuction with the Natiinal Board for Technical Education (NBTE) approved the establishment of the Department of Marketing in 2016 to cater for the training of high level manpower needs in Ogun State and in Nigeria at large. This initial 'Resource Accreditation' witnessed the admission of the first set of students in 2017/2018 Academic Session with an enrolment far beyond the institution expectations.

The Department commenced operation under the School of Management and Liberal Studies (SMLS) until faculty restructuring in the Polytechnic in 2018, which then rebirthed the deparment under the School of Management and Business Studies (SMBS).

The pioneer Ag. HOD then was Mr. MUSARI, Adedayo A, with unwavering supports from seasoned and qualified academic staff. We would like to acknowledge Miss. Ogunbanjo Olufunmi A, Miss. Oguntuga A.O., and Mr. Banjo Julius O, just to mention a few.

The Department still runs a-two year National Diploma (ND) Programme in Marketing, after an outstanding execution of the first mandate given to her by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) in 2016.

The second visit of NBTE in December 2019 climaxed the success story of this unique Department, as the Department secured FULL ACCREDITATION STATUS to continue her success story with more streams of students.


The current Ag. HOD, Mr ADEBANJO, Oludotun A; has always credited this feat to the unending supports from the management of the Polytechnic and the unalloyed steadfastness of the academic and non-academic staff of the department.

This development has further geared the Governing Council of the Polytechnic to leave no stone unturned in fine tuning approval for the commencement of the Higher National Diploma (HND) Programme in Marketing by December 2020.
