The Chartered Institute of Project Managers of Nigeria has promised to deepen its relationship with the National University Commission and ensure the enforcement of standards in the project management curriculum for Nigerian universities.
The organisation also said it would work directly with all universities in Nigeria to ensure the accreditation of their project management curriculums in line with the law and ensure that they have the resources to deliver lectures in the field of project management.
The Registrar of CIPMN, Henry Mbadiwe, stated these when he led a delegation on a visit to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Doris Uzoka-Anite, on Tuesday in Abuja.
At the event, he promised to work with the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Investment to build the capacity of project managers in the country.
Uzoka-Anite said it would be of immense benefit to utilise its expertise in managing various initiatives being run within the ministry and the nation at large.
She assured the institute that the ministry was willing to work with the CIPMN and support it in any way it could to ensure its mandate was achieved.
According to Mbadiwe, the institute plans to support the minister’s initiatives in the areas of human capital development, planning, delivering, and monitoring the Ministry’s initiatives for national development.
He said, “We will further deepen our work with the National University Commission in ensuring that the project management curriculum for Nigerian Universities that we were part of creating continue to get updated as the profession advances.
“We will work directly with all universities in Nigeria to ensure that their project management curriculums are accredited by us in line with the law and that we support them in any way they require to ensure that they have the resources to deliver lectures in the field of project management.”
