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.
