It is not in doubt that higher education is a tool of high value to the welfare of any society. However, most of the Universities in Africa are reputed for producing 'half-baked' graduates, unfit for employment anywhere. This has been confirmed in a recent study conducted by the Inter-University Council for East Africa on the quality of graduates in Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. It was found that between 51 perc~nt and 63 percent of graduates from these countries were 'halfbaked.' In order to reverse this ai1l:l other negative trends affecting higher education, Covenant University (CU) has set out to achieve the goal of transforming higher education in African. The objective of this paper, therefore, is to bring into focus the relevance of Covenant University Business Model for enhancing the quality of higher education in Nigeria. The model is considered to offer the right approach as the acquisition and understanding of higher education issues turn away from a focus on the learner 'just finishing the training' to the more holistic approach of actively assimilating, in a congenial environment, what is learnt for further use.
