Business is a cogwheel of vast endowments of the worlds’ wealth and an activity of being busy by transforming factors of production into products and services with the aim of making profits at the same time making the customer happy. 

Since business embraces and affects all spheres of life at any point in time,  business professionals are marked by expertise of specialized knowledge, applicable skills and relevant experience in rendering service/advice to society in anticipation of economic rewards. Thus the business of business persons is to be cog-wheelers/gear-wheelers in providing goods and services to the customer and indeed to society.

 At USJM, The administration and the lectures are always busy transforming young people into vibrant cog-wheelers of wealth so that they can make a positive difference in caring and serving society. 
Additionally, the same young people are provided education whereby graduates are trained to combine career competence with a strong sense of moral responsibility and social values demanded by the challenges of a world characterised by desirable and undesirable continuous fluctuations.

To our dear pioneer graduates, the Faculty congratulates you upon this unique achievement in your professional life and a stepping stone to greater heights in future. Embrace your career with enthusiasm, meet the world of business as revolutionists with a new business paradigm; watch for life surprises with determination, seek opportunities unceasingly, add value to existing resources, move slowly but surely with the aim of achieving your aspirations, take time to get things done right, associate with people who can support or uplift you when things go wrong.  Your Faculty and lecturers are an-already-made support. Fly as high as you can go and refuse to settle for the minimum. Bear in mind that challenges in life are part of doing business in a new perspective. Be patient and great things will happen through hard work and prayer. Be grateful for every good act done to you and be gracious to yourself. Always remember two things: What the mind can conceive it can achieve, Good is not good when better is expected.
