AUL started under the name of “Business and Computer University College” (BCU) with two faculties but later expanded by adding the faculty of Arts and Humanities to the Business Administration, and Sciences and Fine Arts faculties thus gaining the University status and changed its name to meet the expansion of its major offerings.[1]
