Ahmadu Bello University launches first ‘Online’ MBA programme in Nigeria, Partners with Jobberman and Accenture.
Prospective students from any part of the country can now take their MBA from anywhere without the need to go to the ABU campus. Lecture videos and study materials can be accessed offline via custom tablets or Dual USB sticks on smartphones or PCs.
Submitting assignments and projects as well as interacting with lecturers, tutors and other classmates all happen via ABU’s e-learning portal online. What about exams? Those can be done in examination centers spread across all regions in Nigeria.
In an event to mark the launch of the programme, the Director of Distance Learning, Professor Adamu Zoaka Hassan said: “the wall of limitations have been hacked down in the world of distance learning which Ahmadu Bello University is bringing to the educational landscape”.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Ibrahim Garba, represented by his Deputy (Administration), Professor Ibrahim Naiya Sada, at the launch event said: “this is the same degree, same ABU and accredited by the NUC, so it’s safe”.
In a bid to make the programme more robust than any other in the country, the university is also partnering with big names in the corporate industry like Jobberman and Accenture. Jobberman will avail users who become students special offers from internships to CV re-writes and job placements while Accenture will offer capstone projects and internships for students who live in the North.
The MBA is suited for middle-level workers in the private or public sector who want to accelerate their careers, and also entry level workers or fresh graduates who need an extra advantage in the workplace and job market.
