WELCOME TO THE ORGANIZATION OF ECONOMISTS AND BUSINESS ANALYSTS OF NIGERIA (OEBAN)
Until the recent past, it was absolutely difficult for economists to identify themselves with any professional body because of the non-existence of an organized and independent professional body to regulate the conducts and activities of the profession. The problem of identification had forced a good number of our economists to marketers, bankers, accountants, or administrators without genuine enthusiasm.
Organization of Economists and Business Analysts of Nigeria (OEBAN) is positioned as a veritable organization and strategic change agent mandated by incorporation to form a catalyst in Economics and Business matters.
OEBAN is a strategic organization, indoctrinating the art and science of synergical management of Economics and Business resources to develop sustainable capacities.

It is apparent, the world over, that the new millennium stands to be an era of global business information networking, an age when nothing appeals unless it is entertaining, informing and appealing in a pleasurable manner an age of E-myth Business and Economy.
It is our hope that the organization will go a long way in enhancing quality of business planning strategic policy measures at all sectors of our economy. With a singular goal of fostering and promoting business and financial intelligence in the country, the growth and development of this new organization is announced.

Why becoming Professional Economists and, Business Analyst
It goes without saying that education is fast becoming an essential commodity that everyone is aspring to have. High unemployment rate coupled with severe economic crunch often necessitate people at the middle cadre to seek an alternative means of training themselves to acquire more skill while retaining their jobs. The organization therefore, serve as a viable option for such category of people because of its capacity to provide them with their professional training needs and at the same time guaranteening them job security in their work places.
Economics contributes a great deal towards the performance of managerial duties and responsibilities. Just as biology contributesto the medical professin, all other qualifications being the same, managers with a working knowledge of economics can perform their functions more effectively than those without it. The basic function of the managers of a business firm is to achieve the objective of the firm to the maximum possible extent with the limited resources placed at their disposal. Therefore, the basic task of the management is to optimise the use of resources. The organization therefore, welcome you on board.
