Nigeria’s education system fails to deliver a future to the students. Or let’s put it in another way, student’s future is in the hand of such an educational system which can’t provide necessary skills that is essentially required for a quality job. And interestingly enough, the number of job-hunters are increasing day-by-day. Due to the economic structure students are thinking of getting a job before or just after finishing their studies. As the economic growth of Nigeria, like any other country, depends on its educational infrastructure it’s probably not the best idea to rely on traditional learning only. Some research done on alternative learning will eventually point you towards a new form of education – online learning. It provides tailored online learning modules ranging from undergraduate management, hotel and hospitality to fast track MBA. No matter in what stage you are in now or how bad you did back in your school, an online undergraduate diploma will serve an alternative path with which you can upgrade your skills to get a sustainable job title in Graduate recruitment or ‘milk round’. Additionally, this will surely quicken your way for further educational qualification while being wrapped up by your assigned job in a company.

Nigerian economy in global perspective: What’s to be done.

According to the World Bank Nigeria’s present economic condition can’t be revived if approximately 60 million jobs are not created and filled up by skilled people within this and the next decade. The question is whether this part of the world has that much infrastructure to fulfill the need? The answer, without a doubt, is no. But it can have, if learners are keen enough acquire essential knowledge and training by choosing online learning – as an upgraded version of education – to gain an undergraduate diploma. This will surely increase the opportunity to get jobs in public and privet sectors.
