ACHIEVEMENTS, RECOGNITION AND ACCREDITATION

Throughout our history, we’ve done things differently. We put our values into practice so we’re regularly the first in the continent to introduce new products and services, and showcase new research and policies.

From being the first entrepreneurship college in Africa to develop curriculum for professional certificate to doctorate programmes in entrepreneurship with required study materials, to the creation of African Society for Female Entrepreneurship (ASOFENT),International Association of Technopreneurs (IATECH) and Society for Agropreneurship and Agribusiness (SOFAAG) in collaboration with our Institute of Classic Entrepreneurs (INCENT), and the floating of African Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, we’re proud to be pioneers.

Legal Status

College of Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management is registered with Corporate Affairs Commission, Nigeria, and as such recognised in law under CAMA 1990 vide certificate NO RC 1254784 to award professional certificate, diploma, higher diploma, professional post graduate diploma, professional master and professional doctoral certificates in Entrepreneurship..

Accreditation

Nigerians are tired of accredited programmes that cannot guarantee their selfreliance or financial independence. Given the unacceptable level of unemployment in our country, they have realised that the most accredited degree is the one that guarantees their self-reliance. Most Nigerians, unlike before, now agree that it is preferable to be self-reliant graduate of an unaccredited institution than unemployed graduate of accredited institution. This is because, people pay you for what you do with what you know and not what you claim you know.

Entrepreneurship education is in infancy in Nigeria. The regulatory agencies of the Federal Ministry of Education (National Board for Technical Education and National University Commission) can only boast of curriculum/syllabus for Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Practice of Entrepreneurship. This is evidenced when no Nigerian polytechnic runs National Diploma or Higher National Diploma in Entrepreneurship and no university runs accredited B.Sc. in Entrepreneurship.

Contrary to widespread assertion, we at CESBUM believe Nigerian graduates are employable; they are only victims of wrongly structured education. CESBUM is not training job-seekers but job-creators that need “selfaccreditation/ recognition” in order to proffer solution to the unemployment of graduates of accredited institutions.

However, all courses currently offered by the College are duly accredited by the Institute of Classic Entrepreneurs (INCENT). Institute of Classic Entrepreneurs (INCENT) is the Africa's most prestigious and forward-thinking professional entrepreneurship body primarily focusing on production of professional, classic and successful entrepreneurs by building capacity in Entrepreneurship, Small Business Management, and related disciplines through offering of a powerful formula that not only equips them with a well-rounded and internationallyrelevant entrepreneurship education based on internationally-competitive curriculum, but one which provides students/members with extensive practical experience and industry relevant skills. We call this the “INCENT Professional Model” that grooms you to become a Future Ready Professional (FRP), a revolutionary approach that gives them a clear competitive edge over nonmembers.
