Office And Information Management

The Department of Office and Information Management, Rivers State University, Port Harcourt was established as a full-fledged Department in the Faculty of Management Sciences in the year 1980. On inception, the department was known as The Department of Secretarial Administration. The Department turned out its first batch of graduates in 1984 (i.e. in the 1983/84 academic session).

By 2009, the rapid advancement in Information Communication Technology (ICT) had compelled a need to expand the curriculum of the department. The expansion warranted a change in the name of the department to reflect innovations in the curriculum. The new name necessitated by the innovations is Office and Information Management.
