Haske Business School (HaskeBS) is the only functional Business School in Northeast Nigeria and the second in the whole of Northern Nigeria. Gombe, the Capital of Gombe State has been known for its cultural diversity and commerce. The vision of HaskeBS is “to have individuals with passion for excellence and productivity-oriented disposition for the global economy”. Our mission is “to develop business professionals through a technologically driven platform that transforms and grows experienced individuals that contribute to development of industries and nations”.
Haske Business School was established in July 2020 from the long-lived reputation of the Centre For Microenterprise Development (CMD) www.microenterpriseplace.com
CMD is Nigeria's foremost technical service provider to microfinance banks and institutions. It was established in 2002 and incorporated as a Company limited by guarantee in 2005. The Centre provides services for the promotion of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to include Business development services, professional business plans and credit to farmers groups.
In addition, CMD was the go-to place for capacity building for individuals, corporate entities and governmental institutions which attracted her recognition and accreditation from reputable institutions to host their examinations (Frankfort School of Finance & Management); serve as tuition center (Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria and Chartered Institute of Certified Secretaries and Reporters of Nigeria); Microfinance Technical Services Provider (Central Bank of Nigeria); financial literacy training provider (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ); and business development services provider (Bank of Industry).
In 2019, the Board of Centre for Microenterprise Development took a decision to upscale the training programs and introduce new ones; hence the establishment of an educational Institution that will offer professional courses for certification in the areas of Business Administration, Accounting, Finance, Economics, Strategy and Diplomacy, and Agribusiness Management, to mention a few. Haske Business School has designed its curricula in line with best academic practices in the fields of Business Administration for issuance of certificates.
We have established an institution that is solely focused on developing excellent minds who can dabble into the society’s storms and transform limited resources to self-sufficiency, especially given the overwhelming trends of poverty, terrorism, kidnapping, corruption, rape, drug abuse, thuggery and other social and political vices. HBS ultimately provides the best platform and continuously make available the required skills and funding windows for our students and advisees to bridging the gap in the Northeast and beyond.
We are currently working tirelessly for collaborations, partnerships and affiliations with reputable Institutions, Agencies, and International Organizations to give our students sense of pride and dignity in Nigeria and the world over. You are therefore welcome to HASKE BUSINESS SCHOOL, the Institution with the greatest difference and purpose-driven initiative.
