Completion of the programme takes two years of part-time study and will provide graduates with a world-class MBA from a globally recognized university.
As part of the Coventry University and eLearnAfrica initiative, 50 civil servants will initially be offered the opportunity to study the Coventry University online MBA programme.
The CEO of eLearnAfrica, Brook Negussie, explained the benefits of the bursary and MBA. “We are very excited to offer access to this very prestigious programme. As it is fully online and has a more flexible part-time course load, students can continue with their responsibilities while earning a degree from a globally-recognized university. This is an international programme, so students will interact with their peers from around the world.”
Former Minister of Education of Rwanda, Prof. Silas Lwakabamba, who recently joined the eLearnAfrica Academic Advisory Board, is coordinating the initiative in Rwanda.
“This programme has been launched in Rwanda and promises to support the constant improvement of our civil servants, who work every day to serve the people of Rwanda. We are confident that Rwanda will serve as a model for similar programmes throughout East Africa and the rest of the continent.”
The MBA provides students with the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills required to progress to more senior leadership roles. Students will gain an internationally recognized business qualification from a highly reputable, leading UK university.
Students will study through the social learning platform FutureLearn, giving them a chance to share knowledge and experience with other students and industry experts from across the globe. The platform is easily accessible on mobiles, tablets and desktops, making it easier to fit the course and learning around other commitments. Students will still have access to world-class teaching, with all learning and assessment taking place online. They will also receive the same Coventry University degree as those who study on-campus.
