Students of Skyline University Nigeria have been selected amongst 30 institutions to proceed with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Tertiary Institutions Entrepreneurship Scheme (TIES). Having passed the first stage of the competition among other 145 institutions in the country, the students have been invited to proceed to the second stage of evaluation.
The participation of students in the next stage of the TIES competition will help them learn new things and get familiar with new tools and methods. They will as well, explore their boundaries and expand their horizons while they have the chance to showcase their skills to the world.
The TIES is an initiative of the CBN aimed at addressing the rising youth unemployment and underemployment by creating a paradigm shift among undergraduates and graduates from the pursuit of white-collar jobs to a culture of job creation, economic growth, and sustainable development.
Competitions are some of the University’s platforms for providing a myriad of opportunities for students to demonstrate their talent, and provide a stepping stone to achieving greater things in life. It also represents for the students an unconventional but effective way of securing grants, scholarships, and exposure to real-world issues, amongst others.
Congratulations to the students!
