Koladaisi University Joins New Horizons Ecosystem for International Digital Empowerment for Students with Other Two Universities
Strategic private universities in Nigeria are evidently blazing the trail in the repositioning of Nigerian undergraduates to leverage the 21st Century opportunities being thrown up through the 4th Industrial Revolution evolvements.
This was further boldly manifested by the strategic decisions of the Managements of three esteemed tertiary Institutions at separate events where they signed Memorandum of Understanding with New Horizons, which is a US-based, world’s largest IT and E Business Skills Training Organization with 370 Centres in 80 Countries and 39 years operational experience globally.
Recalling the atmosphere at the separate Signing events through a press release, the Vice Chancellors of the Universities captured their universities’ visions for producing 21st Century compliant graduates and positioning of their Citadels of Learning at the front row of IT-driven Universities in Nigeria and the world at large in the shortest possible time.
For the Vice Chancellor of KolaDaisi University, Professor Adeniyi Olatunbosun, the University is partnering with New Horizons given its pedigree which aligns well with the vision and mission of the University which emphasize the production of graduates that are able to respond to socio-economic needs through their high employability attributes and competencies. He said the collaboration will enable the students acquire international competencies which will distinguish and enhance their marketability both locally and internationally.
The MD/CEO New Horizons Nigeria, Engineer Tim Akano, commended the Managements of the Universities for their unusual bold step to synergise with the experts from the industry through the adoption of the international certification-based IT/E Business skills and project-oriented empowerments for the students, as obtained with other sixteen Nigerian University Partners.
He said it is high time Nigerian Universities become the factory for the production of 21st century-ready graduates who can rival their counterparts anywhere in the world in terms of lucrative employability and self-employments, since they are bound to compete with graduates from across the world.
He further said Nigerian Universities can re-position through the partnerships as high-tech/IT research Centres through the leverage of 4th Industrial Revolution technology and produce novel IT-facilitated products which can generate billions of dollars to them from international investors.
He said this was what obtained in world-class Universities like Hebrew, MIT, Stanford, among others that are financially buoyant through leverage of IT-based technological researches.
