Mosisiye Kayode, the
assistant country director of MSBM (Nigeria), explained this in Abuja

young professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs.
She said: “We have
affiliations with schools in the UK but anyone participating in our
school in Abuja has worked, studied and lived in the UK at a particular
time because you cannot give what you do not have. So anyone who is
going to teach in our class is someone who has studied, worked and lived
in the UK .
“If you have a
certificate from the UK, it is more appreciated because they know that
we don’t just give you the teaching, we give you the real life scenario.
“Enterprise 101 has always
been a vision of ours; we have actually been looking forward to bringing

them have things they will want to share with other young people just

Chukwugozim Melekwe one of the participants said: “Even
though I have some sort of safety net by working right now, it has
always been a part of me to make things happen. We need knowledge to be
successful. As a professional and aspiring business person, there are
questions that I need answers for, there are things I need to know.”
It is important to note that a 2017 global
ranking of universities released by the Times Higher Education placed
the University of Ibadan in Oyo state, Nigeria at number 801 among the best 978 in the world.
