Firm Gives Facelift To Lecture Halls At UNILAG
Three lecture halls in the University of Lagos has been given a facelift by an organisation, platform capital that renovated and handed over three halls to the Executive MBA Programme of the University of Lagos Business School (ULBS)
The Chairman of the Organisation, Dr. Akintoye Akindele, pledged a $10,000 (dollars) prize money to the best graduating student of the Executive MBA Programme and will be given automated employment at capital platform and its subsidiaries and internship for students of the programme yearly.
It is a state-of-the-art building with interactive white boards, sound systems and furniture required for digital learning.
While unveiling the facility, Akindele said platform capital are willing to do more for business school.
“The launch of the world class lecture halls in the University of Lagos (UNILAG), was just phase 1 for the university. we are going to complete the entire building before the end of the year, install a full end-to-end fibre data link to complement the state of the art telecommunications and infrastructure. With that in place, from these lecture halls, we can run programmes from Harvard to Silicon Valley Business School to ISM Paris and many more business schools online and real time for our best and brightest on the continent. If we educate and expose our mind, innovate and solve the problem, imagine the compound effect of that on Africa.”
Platform Capital seems to have given a proper response to the call by UNILAG Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe who had made a plea for support to improve the institution’s business/entrepreneurship education service delivery through provision of requisite learning facilities technology and content partnership.
Prof. Ogundipe while applauding platform capital for their effort and kind gesture said the facility would promote e-learning real time.
