Every organization has set objectives that mark its essence of existence, the achievement or otherwise of these objectives is dynamically subject to the aptitudes, learning, capacity and the fundamental trademark representing the organization. The basic trademark here dives genuinely deep into the continuing piece of the organization: the qualities and convictions administering its individuals. This study aims at examining how the aggregate qualities, convictions and standards of the people in an organization generally affect the organization’s ability to meet and surpass its set objectives. This conceptual paper breaks down the achievement of Covenant University, Nigeria, which in spite of the challenging Nigerian business environment described by absence of foundations, infrastructure, unfavorable government strategies, and high inflation rate, has seen huge development and improvement in the twelve years of presence as displayed by its position as the number one University in Nigeria and 15th in West Africa according to the 2015 Webometrics Rankings of Universities. It is observed that the success of the University is as a result of the core values of the organization, which has trickled down from the entrepreneur to every level of management, teaching and non-teaching staff and which is duly enforced on the students of the University.
