Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) is the Entrepreneurship Centre of the Pan-Atlantic University. Set up in 2003 as the Centre for Enterprise Development Services (EDS), the Centre emerged as a direct response to the dearth of available professional business development and support services to small and growing businesses in Nigeria.
To build a network of entrepreneurial leaders through commitment to continuous learning, process improvement and business integrity.
EDC’s strength lies in it’s network of partners and collaborators, hence a lot of emphasis is being placed on partnership building, collaboration and constantly searching for value-driven initiatives / projects with high societal impact.
We believe deeply in applied knowledge. Consequently, most of what we do often end up in “How Knowledge gained” can be implemented for personal and organizational improvement. Every project is treated differently and solutions are derived from first principles. This makes each of our project unique.
Beyond our initial intervention however, we believe strongly in long relationships, therefore we continue to engage with our clients and beneficiaries long after concluding the project.
Pan-Atlantic University (PAU) is currently made up of four main units: a graduate business school – the Lagos Business School (LBS)—which started in 1991; the Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) which started in 2003; a graduate school of media—the School of Media and Communication (SMC)—which started in 2008 and an undergraduate school of business administration – the School of Business Administration (SBA) – which started in 2014.
At PAU the fundamental inspiration is provided by the Christian conception of man and society. The Prelature of Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church, takes responsibility for ensuring that this conception actually informs all activities of the University. The Prelature of Opus Dei also provides the University with the necessary spiritual and pastoral means in order to maintain and develop its Christian identity.
