A management innovation program for undergraduates to master market mechanics
Lagos, Nigeria: Today, YouthUp, a nonprofit voice of global youths with the single goal of uplifting every young person into greatness through education, entertainment, and networking, in partnership with Tekedia Institute announced the launch of CollegeBoost on the 13th September 2020 for undergraduate students.
CollegeBoost is a management innovation program that is structured to help university students master the mechanics of markets and management systems. The Tekedia CollegeBoost mirrors Tekedia Mini-MBA, but it is more streamlined to serve undergraduate students. It is open for schools, alumni groups, student unions, etc. and each batch is scheduled to run for eight weeks which is segmented into two modules:
- The Innovation of Firms (1st Semester): Four weeks
- The Wealth in Nations (2nd Semester): Four weeks
Of the organization’s recent reveal, YouthUp’s Cofounder, Faith Nwaobia said, “This CollegeBoost program has a perfect alignment with the first cardinal mission of establishing YouthUp Global which is to uplift young people through education, a weapon to liberate minds for an inquiry into the nature and causes of the fundamental changes in global economies and to help prepare them for a smooth academic-career transition.”
For this CollegeBoost partnership, YouthUp assumes responsibility for registration, mobilization, and all other matters concerning access to the CollegeBoost program while Tekedia Institute focuses on enrollee training. Before now, YouthUp already partnered Tekedia to coordinate the Tekedia Mini-MBA scholarship process for ten young professionals.
YouthUp’s Content team lead and Tekedia Mini-MBA scholar, Emmanuel Nwanja said that “Especially in Africa where curricular are outdated, Tekedia CollegeBoost program will provide students with the opportunity to learn innovation and real-world problem-solving capabilities.”
It is on this note that YouthUp encourages undergraduate students to embrace innovation and business management as a route to a sustainable career, organizational, and national growth. And with the program launch, all undergraduate students around the globe can now enroll to join the first batch of trainees.
