This serves to inform our highly esteemed parents/guardians that ABUAD Senate has approved the commencement of a Certificate Programme in Entrepreneurship as from first semester 2017/2018 academic session.
The 12-week programme (once a week) which is mandatory for all 300 level students is part of the vision of the Founder of our great university to add value to our students and afford them the opportunity of becoming self-reliant after graduation.
The complexities and competitiveness associated with the present global market place demand that graduates enter the workforce fully equipped, with skills in a vocation in addition to the University degree.
At the beginning of next session, 300 level students will pay N20,000 covering registration, training and certification in their chosen vocation. (Please find attached the list of various vocations offered by ABUAD Entrepreneurship Centre). In addition to the skills acquisition, students will be tutored on how to run a business and how to source for takeoff grants.
On completion of the 12-week programme, Certificate in Entrepreneurship will be awarded to all successful 300 level students. This is aimed at giving our students the edge over their contemporaries in this highly competitive labour market.
Parents are therefore enjoined to support this timely and laudable programme by preparing their wards, paying the required charges (N20,000) and ensuring early resumption come September 2017.
