InfoWARE Market Data Terminal now Integrated into University’s Curriculum
Education is not a process that results in a graduate not finding a job. If after years of “education”, graduates are destined to unemployment or to non-productive jobs, then they are not “educated.”
In a bid to build a bridge between “town and gown”; ‘town’ being the non-academic population and ‘gown’ metonymically being the university community; InfoWARE Limited, as one of its Corporate Social responsibility, partners with Pan-Atlantic University (PAU) to integrate InfoWARE Market Data Terminal (IMDT) into the University’s curriculum.
Pan Atlantic University now has InfoWARE Market data terminal (IMDT) installed in its well-equipped computer laboratory to enable students leverage the real-time market data terminal in learning more about the financial and capital market. This innovative and empowering partnership is the first of its kind in Nigeria as PAU will be the first University to implement the Bloomberg-like terminal.
With the Pan-Atlantic University’s aim to nurture individuals who are professionally competent, creative and enterprising, the collaboration, as we are open to have with willing tertiary institutions in Nigeria and Africa at large, will help educate and prepare students for the Industry.
PAU with its relevant programs, haven integrate IMDT, would continue to produce graduates that meet market demands and contribute to the development of the economy through the help of qualified instructors and highly experienced InfoWARE-Industry experts. These will ultimately educate and empower students with data analysis, research, data modelling, financial and capital market skills and knowledge needed to flourish in the labour market rather than measuring student ability to rote-memorize.
During the official launch /press conference last Thursday, Prof. Chantal Epie, Dean School of Management and Social Science, Pan-Atlantic University stated that “The partnership will help improve the employability of the PAU students in the financial market. As these will help prepare students for the industry, students will not only be employable by big players in the asset management and brokerage space who use InfoWARE to process transactions on a daily basis. But would also help them garner experience – given them a competitive advantage over their peers.”
Uwa Agbonile (CEO/ Chief Solution Architect InfoWARE Limited) revealed that “the CSR initiative is primarily to encourage the creation of quality jobs, and close the mismatch between education and the labour market.” He went on to state that “ After students get trained in class, they can learn to place trade using real-time market data via GrowMyKudi – a product InfoWARE would launch in coming months for students and investment enthusiasts to explore real-time market data to virtually invest and place trades.”
Users of the said platform would be able to virtually buy and sell underlying asset leveraging Robo-Advisory -instructions, build an investment-based portfolio, execute market orders, get investment education, and access a great community of traders and investment enthusiasts.
