A Case For MBA At Open University (NOUN) by olajideportha(m): 8:16pm On Jun 22, 2017
Please fellow NL, I am on the verge of registering for MBA at NOUN, but today a senior colleague told me its not recognised as such for career advancement and that organizations in Nigeria do not reckon with it. Its cheaper and more flexible considering my type of job and where i work. Please your objective analysis and advice is highly needed.

My brother, MBA is more practical than an undergraduate degree where anything goes, any employer that is serious would not look at your school but what you can put forward. I had my MBA from NOUN, and graduated in 2014. This has not only helped me as an individual but also the company where i work. i have been promoted twice after my graduation.It is only in Nigeria that all these discriminations and unnecessary display of certificates without substance can be found, there are open universities all over the world just to make learning easier and closer to the people, and this add to the rapid advancement in knowledge. Be determined to go for your MBA where you can, Noun certificates are accredited and recognized by NUC and their students are doing well, even on the job.

Not only in 9ja u ve certificate discrimination, presently Canada dnt accept any certificate frm Uniport. 2 b admitted into Canada schools u re expected 2 take English proficiency test if u schooled in 9ja but not applicable 2 those who schooled in Ghana and both countries teach with English. this is jst 2 mention a few.

My advice is if u ve sm constraints goin 2 an old generation federal Uni (UI, UNN, OAU) u can choose NOUN but if not please go 2 an old generation federal uni. MBA requires a lot of practical approach using real life cases. Having an MBA means that u should b able 2 diagnose an organization facing challenges and offering solutions(Consultant/Business Doctor) not as a paper 4 d aim of gaining promotion at place of work which I feel is v myopic.

In a nut shell, to ve d distinctive competencies that will mk u stand out from other MBA counterparts requires outstanding tutors which re mainly found in very few Uni presently in 9ja.
