SilverEdge Projects Limited recently started an initiative, tagged “Best One in Africa”, to carve a niche for Nigerian universities, making them the best in Africa in one discipline of their choice, preferably in science, engineering, medicine and business.
We plan to achieve this within 5 years by facilitating collaboration with universities in the United States of America and Canada, especially United States Tier One universities. The collaboration will be at the faculty, students and management levels.
At the faculty and students levels, US/Canadian universities will provide inputs and contributions to research skills and areas, curriculum, supervision and diversity in learning, while management will share best practices in university administration with Nigerian universities.
Foreign universities will also benefit from this initiative by having a global perspective to their programs, broader research and student recruitment options. The following institutions and departments have been selected for the first phase of the initiative.
