Daily Trust - - DIGEST - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

200 stu­dents from Uni­ver­sity of La­gos are to un­dergo six days of coach­ing with in­ter­na­tional train­ers or­ga­nized at an im­pact week or­ga­nized by Lufthansa Group and Help Al­liance.

‘Im­pact Week 2017’ is sched­uled to be held at the uni­ver­sity cam­pus in Akoka from Oc­to­ber 20.

The one week pro­gramme aimed at train­ing par­tic­i­pants to de­velop sus­tain­able busi­ness mod­els us­ing dif­fer­ent in­no­va­tion tech­niques like the in­no­va­tive ‘De­sign Think­ing’.

Lufthansa Gen­eral Man­ager Nige­ria, Robin So­hdi said, “We are ex­cited to have a team of UNILAG pro­fes­sion­als, Lufthansa in­ter­na­tional staff and other ex­perts come to­gether with around 200 stu­dents to de­velop their skills, broaden and take on the tasks of think­ing about so­lu­tions for so­cio-eco­nomic chal­lenges right here.”

Direc­tor En­trepreneur­ship Cen­tre, UNILAG, Dr. Sun­day Ade­bisi said, “It is ex­cit­ing to have the Im­pact Week in Nige­ria and more im­por­tantly in the uni­ver­sity to sup­port a life chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for our teach­ers and stu­dents by Lufthansa Ger­many Air­lines.”

The six-day event will help par­tic­i­pants find, test and de­velop busi­ness ideas with great in­no­va­tion.

A state­ment from the air­line said UNILAG was cho­sen based on its high rat­ing amidst higher in­sti­tu­tions in Nige­ria and its cen­tral lo­ca­tion in Yaba, the “Sil­i­con Val­ley” of Nige­ria, which pro­vides prox­im­ity to tal­ented stu­dents in La­gos.
