There is nothing we see around us today whether institution or a corporate body that does not have a beginning and we all know that beginning could be so small. This is demonstrated in that lives as all lives were born small and inside that smallness lies a full grown man or woman that has the potential of leading a whole nation.

The Department of Industrial Relations and Personnel Management in the University of Ilorin was born out of passion of the Management Team to grow the University to a level of impact on the African Continent.

The Accounting and Finance Department was pioneered by Professor B.O. Ogundele. He started the Department as the Head of Department in 1981. The Curriculum of the degrees offered here are akin to those offered by the University of Lagos. The first set of students to be enrolled in the Department were in the 1981/82 and they graduated in 1984/85 session. However, the Department of Finance was separated from the old Department of Accounting and Finance by the Senate on 30th July, 2013 at its 233rd meeting.
