Ahmadu Bello University | Zaria, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 8 & UNAI 2
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Investment Society,Ahmadu Bello University,Zaria.
The student Empowerment Initiative named "The Investment Society,Ahmadu Bello University,Zaria" was birthed as a result of the poor educational system on the continent which does not prepare students for the changing nature work(employabiltiy skills).
It is glared that the higher institution education is necessary but not sufficient enough for one to navigate the real world,so therefore,there is need for one to equip oneself with the required workplace skills by seeking for revolution beyond classroom.
The Investment Society,ABU,Zaria is established to bridge the (aforementioned) gap between theory and thought in the area of Finance,Investment and Management consulting by simulating the real world in each of the aforementioned field.
How do we intend to achieve all this?We have been achieving this and still craving for more by inviting professionals in practice to serve co-educators/facilitators of students making it an experiental type of learning, we also organize various event driven finance activities targeted at deepening the understanding of our members.
