In a bid to reposition graduates in the quest to rebuild the economy through entrepreneurial certification, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has been tasked to review the university policy that will inculcate entrepreneurial spirit.
Speaking at the annual entrepreneurial lecture of Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti, ABUAD, Yinka Olugbodi, CEO, Team Building International (TBI), said: “With the consequence of recession on our economy, the challenge the nation’s higher institutions have is producing graduates without equipping them with entrepreneurial skill. I will strongly urge the National Universities Commission to speedily review the university education policy to be built on entrepreneurial mindset which is the foundation of developed nations”.
Olugbodi commended ABUAD for engaging students in nation-building through its entrepreneurship program. “I am seriously elated to be bestowed with Ambassador of the great institution because ABUAD is seriously addressing this by awarding a certificate in entrepreneurship irrespective of the course of study. For instance, if you are a medical student, you will get your degree and certificate in medicine but you will also do some compulsory course in entrepreneurship and get another certificate in entrepreneurship”, he said.
