In pursuance of its culture of transforming lives through excellent and professional education, the JIMIT University Institute signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Bamenda (UBa) on Friday, June 14, 2019.
The ceremony took place at the campus of UBa and was chaired by the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the host university, Professor Theresia Nkuo Akenji in the company of representatives of JIMIT and the Ministry of Higher Education. The VC used the occasion to encourage the management of JIMIT and promised them the full support of UBa along the guidelines of the Ministry of Higher Education. Prof Akenji also upheld the huge appetite of the management of JIMIT for excellence and challenged them to strive for more.
According to the MoU, UBa would serve as a mentoring academic authority of JIMIT and would supervise the institution’s academic programmes and other related activities. Both JIMIT and UBa would henceforth be organizing joint programmes including seminars, research, scientific forums, workshops and many others. Moreover, examinations and defense sessions at JIMIT would henceforth be supervised by UBa.
However, the biggest fallout of the MoU would be the award of JIMIT’s end of course degrees and certificates by UBa. In essence, UBa would henceforth be issuing certificates and diplomas for graduating students of JIMIT University Institute.
The MoU also received the administrative and academic approval of Cameroon’s Minister of Higher Education and Grand Chancellor of Academic Orders, Professor Jacques Fame Ndongo on August 26, 2019. While endorsing the document, Professor Fame Ndongo encouraged the young and dynamic entrepreneurial and academic team behind JIMIT and promised them better days ahead.
Prior to the signing ceremony, a team of supervisors from UBa visited JIMIT University Institute Yaoundé on June 22, 2018 and were satisfied with the quality of Teachers, the casting of students and the ever growing infrastructure of the institute. The UBa inspection team was also pleased with the management style and team faithfully embedded in the vision of its founder, Mme Mary Jose Nabola. With this new MoU, the future can only be better for JIMIT and especially its ever growing dynamic student population.
