The United Kingdom-based Metropolitan School of Business and Management (MSBM) has revealed why certificates obtained outside Nigeria will continue to be more valued and considered over those obtained in the country.
This disclosure was made by the Assistant Country Director of MSBM (Nigeria), Mosisiye Kayode, in Abuja during the Enterprise 101 workshop organised for business managers, young professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Some of the rationales behind the value adduced on foreign certificates by the institution include “use of dynamic and relevant practice-based approaches” and the combination of corporate experience with “interactive teaching methodology with live case studies”.
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 in people and entrepreneurs in Abuja to come around because most of them have things they will want to share with other young people just for young aspiring entrepreneurs to actually gain from.”
