Schedule of programmed lecture is as shown below

 

 

 

Unprogammed Lectures

These lectures are not programmed in accordance with lessons in enterprise and entrepreneurship. They are adhoc lectures designed to address specific societal issues on the fundamentals of strategy. They are also lectures designed to teach and learn certain tools and techniques in enterprise and entrepreneurship such as;

  • SWOT Analysis
  • Fault Tree Analysis
  • Situational/Audit Analysis
  • Visions and Visioning
  • Internal Configuration Analysis
  • External Configuration Analysis
  • Issues in Strategy
  • Strategic Change Analysis
  • Innovation and continuous improvement

 

Guest Lectures

On annual basis, guest lecturers will be invited to address specific Nigerian issues on the basis of defined strategies. For example guest lecturers will be invited to address issues bordering on security, economy, politics, human resources/technology, law and justice in Nigeria based on strategies not just policies

 

Seminars

Seminars as distinct from lectures are designed as training platforms for how issues in enterprise and entrepreneurship can be applied in specific work situation or field of endeavors.

Seminars will be employed to discuss skills (not education) acquisition in enterprise and entrepreneurship. Thus seminars are not appropriate at the level of fundamentals of enterprise and entrepreneurship.

 

Conferences

Conferences are largely the same as seminars. However they attract larger participants and issues that will be discussed in themes and tracks. Conferences, unlike seminars should be conducted at annual or bi-annual basis.

 

Workshops

Workshops are employed to discuss issues that are multi-dimensional and require various instruments to address. Workshops in generic strategies are designed to explore various forms, types, and levels of strategy in addressing nagging issues in Nigeria. Workshop will be conducted as the need arises

 

Retreats/Think Tanks

When an issue becomes strategic and requires deep critical thinking, retreats/think tanks will be employed as the platform to address them. Retreats demand temporary withdrawal from the routine.

 

 

Exams / Certification

Every participant in the entrepreneur programme will be certificated. However since the programme is essentially vocational, certificates will be issues as the need demands
