Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State, remains committed to its vision of
producing highly skilled graduates who can stand on their own anywhere in

private university made the declaration while declaring open the university’s entrepreneurial skills acquisition and
employability training, organised by Sir (Dr) David Osunde Centre For Entrepreneurship and Skills Acquisition.
Igbinedion University.

He expressed pride to have championed higher education revolution in Nigeria through innovation, entrepreneurship, and bespoke research in tandem with its motto of knowledge and excellence.

According to him, it is noteworthy that Igbinedion University pioneered entrepreneurial skills acquisition
as a course in the Nigerian
University System before the
National Universities Commission (NUC) made it compulsory in all universities.

“It is, therefore, heartwarming that the Federal and state governments, including
the NUC, have accorded special priority attention to this initiative because of the huge potential that entrepreneurial
skills acquisition holds for the
future of the youth”.

Ezemonye also disclosed that the Igbinedion University engages all its 300 level students across the Colleges
on Entrepreneurial Studies, having gone through the foundational course: EPS 211 at 200 level and it is the practical and
final phase of their training in entrepreneurship.

The training, he said, is packaged and deliberately articulated towards psychologically preparing the students to become future-ready graduates through gainful engagements after life in the ivory tower.
