THE Nigerian Association of Small and Medium Enterprises has collaborated with the Rome School of Business in Nigeria with a view to training Nigerian entrepreneurs and business owners on sustainable business practices.
The Country Manager, Rome Business School in Nigeria, Mr. Humphrey Akanazu, said that the business training from the Rome School of Business in Nigeria followed strictly the tradition of entrepreneurship and family business establishments in Italy.
He said that the school was brought to Nigeria because of the importance foreign investors attached to the country.
The school, according to him, will be working in collaboration with students to develop case studies based on the challenges and needs of the industrial sector, adding that their final year projects would be a template for solving problems in industries.
Akanazu said that in advanced countries, students were tasked to create products as part of their projects and firms who had need of those products or appreciate the skills of the students often picked products and workers from the educational institutions.
“In universities, people do researches and abandon them on the shelves, but good researches should be commercialised and that is what will happen to researches that come from the Rome School of Business in Nigeria,” he said.
