The British American University (BAU), Florida, was established by Prof. Muhammad Omolaja, formerly a Lecturer in the Department of Business Administration, Ogun State University (now Olabisi Onabanjo University), Nigeria on the premise that modern University education should transcend the bounds of the traditional and theoretical approach to education by providing students with curricula that can help prepare them to pursue their academic and professional interests in many of the today’s most opportunistic industries. The University, as an intercontinental University of the world-class distinction, was approved and registered under the Laws of Florida, USA, in accordance with Section 15.16 of Florida Statute with Registration No. L18000118730, Authentication Code No. 918A00010050–051518-L18000118730–1/1 and the EIN (Employer Identification Number) 35-2630004.
As an intercontinental University of the world class distinction, BAU in collaboration with our Partner Universities in over 30 countries operates in 6 continents including Africa, Asia, South America, North America, USA as well as Europe and United Kingdom to the advantages of nationals of many nations. Consequently, because of the worldwide recognition of the University, our Nigerian students would have the opportunity to take part in the mandatory National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) program in Nigeria upon their successful graduation from the University. This applies in the same vein to other nations throughout the world!
BAU, as distinctive institution of higher education and center of academic and professional excellence, offers cutting-edge programs in a spectrum of highly marketable fields at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree levels in addition to a number of specialized professional Diploma and Certificate options. BAU offers many specialized programs including Management Sciences, Social Sciences, Pure and Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology, Law and Criminology as well as arts programs with a high level of professionalism, exactness and problem solving skills, which facilitates further education and development of our students’ knowledge throughout their life.
The curriculum at the BAU is structured after the best British, American and Caribbean Universities. The academic program is both accelerated and rigorous, with a focus on preparing the students for licensure in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Caribbean and most countries in Africa. BAU has a wide spread influence on the development of Social, management and technology education since the time it opened its doors to students from a wide social background, of all religious beliefs, and to male and female students on equal opportunities and conditions of admission. BAU has a long tradition of providing a wide range of higher education opportunities to students from all over the world. The University is proud of its commitment to balanced excellence in teaching, learning and research which are key aspects of modern tertiary education.
For many years, BAU has offered this innovative approach to education at its Campuses across the world recognized as separate Study Centers. As the job market has grown more and more competitive, BAU has responded accordingly by developing curricula that provide students with industry-current degree programs and career-specific concentrations in many areas of life endeavors. The University’s success in these fields of academic pursuits is reflected in the satisfaction of its graduates, the achievements of its alumni and the commitment of its faculty. With its flagship Campuses in many countries, BAU programs are available internationally, via several blended delivery modes. Such hybrid models offer maximized learning opportunities for those prepared and eager to further their education to the highest level and to enhance their professional career standing.
As a function of its never-ending reach for world-class distinction, the University has been the beneficiary of significant signs of recognition worldwide! As a University of the world class standing, currently in a mode of enhancement and expansion, BAU surges forward in the following ways: a recently-appointed sound leadership team of recognized specialists; a top-tier internationally-recruited faculty (academicians and field experts and professionals of acclaim who manifest both a passion for higher learning and research and a proven commitment to student success) in conjunction with new initiatives including expanded curricula options at the undergraduate and graduate levels; inauguration of academic and professional doctoral programs; enhanced interactivity among program participants; augmented global affiliations and collaborative partnerships; an ever-more powerful support system provided by all institutional departments and divisions; a broadened array of delivery models; and the establishment of learning-study-media Centers in various regions of the world notably signal the forward direction of the University and its unwavering commitment to academic and research excellence.
Strategic outreach initiatives in the University have been specifically fashioned so as to substantiate that all programs are available and accessible to broad national and international student population worldwide. A powerful, multi-faceted support system is in place to foster success of students and to maximize their experiences. A host of recently developed initiatives signal the breadth and scope of the University’s vision, its unwavering commitment to the high-pitched standards, to accelerated momentum as well as its resolve to offer respected, intensive programs of first-class caliber via the most progressive and effective modes of delivery. The curriculum is marked by many distinctions, among them, a powerful commitment to communicative competence and to applied critical thinking and a special emphasis on integrated global perspectives.
As a consequence of such diversity and cross-national emphasis, we become an enriched, value-added repository for expanded learning, wherein global perspectives and multi-cultural exchange flourish. In and by our difference, we stand apart: distinctive in quality, devoted to the individual learner, contemporary in content and presentation, attuned to the issues of the day and to the needs of prospective students world-wide, seeking always to set each program participant on an intellectual journey into the future, yet committed unrelentingly to the core values that have always underpinned, and continue to underpin, the fundamentals of higher education.
HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY
Despite the fact that there are a number of tertiary educational institutions all over the world, the demands for higher education in many countries has always been on the increase. This is because the rush for acquisition of knowledge in various disciplines is expected to continue, at least, in the next foreseeable future. In addition to this, many people of School age from different nations are always in search of educational institutions of international status in order to foster cooperation between them and their foreign partners who are spread across many countries including the Americas, Europeans, Asians, etc. However, in spite of this trend in the educational sector, majority of the existing institutions at this level are more or less situated in big cities and towns to the detriment of the developmental plans for the countryside.
This phenomenon has in turn led to the search for an opportunity for a Center of academic and professional excellence, which will partly satisfy the yearnings of the citizenry across national boundaries for sound ACADEMIC and PROFESSIONAL education in various disciplines and partly reduce the ongoing mass exodus of the youths particularly of school age to the urban cities in search of Universities admissions which may not be readily available; this problem the British American University worldwide intends to solve by offering a blend of education that suit every purpose and condition.
Sequel to the general demand for, and upon our conviction that the inhabitants of the different nationals deserve to be properly integrated and exposed to modern education in the contemporary jet age, where the world has become a global village, it is expedient to establish and locate this very great intercontinental Institution – British American University (BAU) – in different locations across the world with strong collaboration with many first class Universities and research Institutions in over 40 countries. In Africa, we collaborate with Ecole De Techniciens Supérieure du Benin (ECOTES University Benin) and Ecole Supérieure des Sciences, de Commerce et d’Administration des Entreprises du Benin (ESCAE University Benin) in Benin Republic!
PHILOSOPHY OF THE UNIVERSITY
The British American University is a multipurpose friendly community where the rights and privileges of all members irrespective of their race, color, nationalities and affiliations in terms of religious beliefs shall be respected. The programs are designed to improve the knowledge and competence of human resources in various aspects of life as well as to convert those who have graduated in other fields into people with the right skills and outlook needed in the dynamic and turbulent global challenging environment. Therefore, its academic and professional programs are multidisciplinary and as such, they are committed to “balanced excellence”.
The University programs are designed to attract prospective students from various backgrounds from different countries and prepare them for higher positions through a variety of teaching methods: traditional methods (lectures, seminars, group projects and independent research efforts) as well as the case method and Computer simulated games, depending on which approach is most appropriate for the particular course of interest. Again, the teaching methods are designed to help integrate theory with practice, which is the need of the contemporary students across various national boundaries. Consequently, the overriding philosophy of the University is to prepare managers, administrators, scientists, engineers, technologists and educationists for critical tasks of the moment and for the future.

It is the hope of BAU-Florida to operate in the very near future so as to ask every student prior to admission to make a choice of language of instruction, and he/she would be taught in that language’ At present, our students are taught French as a foreign Language from their first day in the University to their graduation!
