Rector lauds Ugwuanyi over support for IMT Enugu

Rector lauds Ugwuanyi over support for IMT Enugu

The Rector of Institute of Management and Tech­nology (IMT), Enugu, Prof Austin Nweze, has com­mended Governor Ifeanyi Ug­wuanyi over his tremendous support to the school, which has placed the institution on global map.
Prof Nweze told newsmen in Enugu that the school re­cent partnership deal with the Dublin City University, Ire­land, facilitated by the gover­nor would go a long way to re­position the school.
Governor Ugwuanyi had in February 2016 led an econom­ic mission to Dublin to explore various investment spheres during which his administra­tion signed a MoU with the Irish university for the purpose of effecting academic engage­ments between the institution and Enugu State-owned tertia­ry institutions.
Speaking on the gains of the MoU, Prof Nweze said the ac­ademic collaboration would allow for cross-fertilization of academic ideas between the in­stitutions, adding that both the students and staff of both insti­tutions are now free to move into the schools for academic engagements.
He said, “We have to thank our governor for providing the connection to Dublin City University for us. This aca­demic collaboration is what polytechnics and universities around the world should be talking about, and it is better when it is done internationally.
“The name of the institu­tions involved would be in the world’s academic map. For instance, IMT is now in the world academic map follow­ing that collaboration.
“That arrangement would benefit us because some of our staff and students would go to Dublin University and theirs would also come here for ex­change of ideas and academ­ic programmes. Any student who completes his programme here can go to Dublin for his post-graduate programmes,” he said.
The rector also poured en­comiums on Ugwuanyi over the moves to make IMT a de­gree awarding institution and described the gesture as an­other laudable effort by the governor.
