Landmark varsity, NIM partner on capacity building

The Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Landmark University (LMU), Kwara State, on award of certificate in Management Programme to enhance opportunity for self-reliance upon graduation.

At a ceremony in the University during the weekend, Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Aize Obayan, said the partnership was borne out of the need to prepare students towards self-employment.

She explained that this step would help address the problem of unemployment in the country, noting that as a professional body, NIM was expected to provide necessary management training to students upon graduation.

Obayan added that the agreement between the school and NIM was in line with the vision of the proprietor of Landmark University, which encourages capacity building in line with global best practices.

She maintained that the MoU would serve as one of the springboards for actualisation of the university’s visionary path, with respect to providing a strong base for students and the university as a whole.

The Registrar and Chief Executive of NIM, Tony Fadaka, stated that Students’ Management Scheme was initiated by the institute as a means of giving students of tertiary institutions the opportunity of imbibing the ideals and values of professional management.

He believed that the willingness of the university to partner with NIM was an indication of its commitment to building a culture of management professionalism among its students.

Fadaka, therefore, assured that LMU/NIM partnership would open up the university to the institute’s network of international organisations with increased benefits.
