Key aspects include:
· Classes & Colloquiums based on modern pedagogy

The curriculum covers core information technology, global technology trends, corporate ethics coaching, business development, management & leadership, etc.
In April 2015, the Programme was launched with ten representatives from our partner institutions. The success story spread across tertiary institutions, as participants returned to their respective schools with testimonies and bolstered confidence.By October 2016, we had successfully completed its second season with thirty participants. We are currently receiving applications for the 2017 edition, and we are looking to admit a minimum of 120 students from all Nigerian higher education institutions (HEIs).
