“Covenant University remains a leading world class university committed to raising a new generation of leaders. In line with our visionary mandate, the university has deployed the necessary predatory and unique curriculum to produce total-man graduates that are expert thinkers, leaders, managers, and hyper-resourceful technocrats in all fields of human endeavour.”
