The location of the institute's academic and administrative headquarters is in Abuja, Nigeria, the country's federal capital.
There are two campuses in Abuja. The current campus shown in Figure 1 is the main campus and centralized adminstrative headquarters of DBI. All academic and administrative policy decisions will flow from the Governing Board through the Administration in Abuja to the other two campuses.
Abuja presents certain advantages including the following:
- Abuja is centrally located in Nigeria, with easy access by road and air transportation;
- As capital city, Abuja has numerous Federal Agencies, schools, international organizations, and private sector companies, which will supply the clientele for the training institute;
- Abuja has the best infrastructure of any Nigerian city, including water resources, roads, communications, energy, etc;
- Abuja is home to the (a) Centre for Cybercrime and Cyber Security, and (b) the Centre for the Study of Electronic Media
- DBI Abuja campus serves as the hub for the digital electronic connectivity of the three campuses so that students and professors on one campus can interact very easily with students and professors in other DBI campuses. The communications networks enable Video/Audio conferencing for electronic learning at a distance.
- The new Abuja campus will feature state of the art conference and meeting facilities which will serve the Institute as well as business and government agencies on a commercial basis. The conference facilities will be connected to the DBI video conference and multi-location electronic meeting platform which will allow businesses and other organizations to hold meetings via video conference from multi-locations.
The current DBI campus in Abuja has been designed to take up to 500 students at full capacity. The current design makes provision offices for lecture halls, standard and executive training rooms, seminar and breakout rooms, video conferencing facility, Wi-Fi Hotspot facility, Digital Resource Library, Telecom and Datacom laboratories, administrative offices and cafeteria. Some of these facilities are still under construction, e.g. Digital Resource Library.
Overall, this unique assembly of multimedia facilities at the Abuja campus permits DBI to offer the following course delivery and learning options:
a. Conventional lecturer-led in-class, on-campus education;
b. Conventional instructor-led in-class, on-campus training;
c. E-learning using self-paced computer based training; and
d. Structured distance learning.
