The Centre for Open and Distance Education (CODE) was set up in November 2011 following recommendations to Management by the E-Learning Committee set up by the President. The centre was established to provide accessibility, affordability and flexibility of educational resources to students without compromise on standards through the use of ICT. The CODE will offer online Central Business School courses leading to the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees and the Master of Business Administration degree. Selected lecturers in the Business School have been trained and commissioned to write course contents for use by the CODE. Already, some of the courses have been written and it is expected that others will be received so that by the beginning of next academic year, the centre will be launched and the courses rolled out.
