MTN Business, the business-to-business arm of Nigeria’s leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Company, MTN Nigeria, has partnered with Regenesys Business School, one of the leaders in the field of business education to launch MTN iLearning, a new initiative that provides entrepreneurs with access to first class business education.
[quote_box_center]The new service eliminates the need of having to sit down in a four-walled classroom whilst allowing the individual acquire all the professional knowledge needed, without having to pay any fees until they are ready to take examinations. It also provides access to knowledge wherever and whenever it is needed – on a desktop computer, a laptop or mobile device.[/quote_box_center]
Speaking at the launch of MTN iLearning, Mr Babatunde Osho, Chief Enterprise Solutions Officer, MTN Nigeria, stated: “This service is set to make a positive impact in many ways. As a young entrepreneur, executive or upwardly mobile business owner, just think of the rich learning and development platform MTN iLearning will provide you on the go. You can now acquire high-level skills that can make a difference in the way you run your business, whenever and wherever you are, while at the same time getting professional certification.”
On his part, Dr Marko Saravanja, Chairperson and Founder of Regenesys, noted that “Education still remains a distant dream for many. However, when organisations, like MTN and Regenesys Business School, work together, we can open the doors to learning and provide world-class education through the use of technology.”
Dr Saravanja affirmed that “Regenesys was built on the philosophy of human development and we believe MTN iLearning is a sustainable way of igniting the human potential in others, promoting economic development and ultimately alleviating poverty.”
MTN iLearning is unique in its own way as it is based on a model called “freemium”, which, put simply, provides anyone with full access to free learning materials including study guides, tutor videos, ebooks, academic articles, business tools and much more. You only need to make payment when you are ready to submit assignments, take examinations or attend classes. Regenesys, with whom MTN Business is collaborating to offer this service, is the first business school in the world to offer free business education, making all learning materials freely available online in this revolutionary initiative.
With MTN iLearning, entrepreneurs can study at their own pace and get the professional certification they need. Organisations can also explore it as a means of providing their ever busy staff or workforce needed professional training and certification without having to miss their valuable service and without paying so much. Given Regenesys’ reputable status, learners have no qualms about the quality of education they receive through the MTN iLearning service.
Also worth mentioning is the scope of education this service covers. “It offers short courses, executive programmes and even MBA qualifications,” explained Mr Osho, adding “all you need do is simply visit the website, www.mtnbusiness.com.ng/ilearning, and you get started with just a few clicks.”
