UNILAG Ranked 3rd Most Productive School In Africa In Educating Entrepreneurs by seguntijan(m): 6:04am On Jun 06
The University of Lagos (UNILAG) was recently acknowledged as the third (3rd) most productive school in educating entrepreneurs in an online publication by Forbes titled: “If You Want To Start A Tech-Company In Africa, Go To College.”

UNILAG was ranked alongside the University of Cape Town, South Africa, which took 1st place; Makerere University, Uganda, which came 2nd; University of Nairobi, Kenya, which came 4th and Stellenbosch University, South Africa, which took 5th place. The article further described the University of Lagos and the University of Nairobi as the “startup powerhouses of Nigeria and Kenya.”

The article, which was written by Meghan McCormick, CEO & Co-founder of OZÉ and contributor on FORBESWOMEN, analysed the importance of education in entrepreneurship in Africa. This was deduced from a research report titled, “Gender & Demographics in Africa’s Green & Digital Transformation”, by Briter Bridges, a data-driven research company.

Although the study population were tech entrepreneurs, it was established that having at least a bachelor’s degree is a significant factor for a startup to thrive in an African country. According to the research data, only 1% of tech entrepreneurs who participated in the study had no degree.

The University of Lagos is delighted about this feature and uses this opportunity to remind great Akokites of it’s mandate to produce talented and creative thinkers who before graduation are fully equipped and poised for the world outside the University campus. Ultimately, UNILAG aims to produce employers of labour, innovators, inventors, creatives and world leaders.

Forbes is an American business magazine that publishes online and in print. Kindly click the links on the article titles above to read them in full.

Lol. But OAU is the Harvard of Nigeria in that regard. The founders of Jobberman, Paystack, Kwudi, and many other fintech startups were from OAU. Akinwumi Adeshina, Jimi Agbaje, Lai Muhammad, Oluremi Tinubu, Jimoh Ibrahim, the CEO of first bank, founder of Ovation, the Founder of Forte Oil and many other well established businesses went to ife too. Fayemi met his wife in ife.
Even Seun Osewa na ife boy.

Proudly an akokite, to the hater who said off course anything in Lagos would get the hype. Note that most of the universities on this list are not in the major cities of their country. Hater alert!
