Alumni Testimonials

Belema West

Industry Strategist, Deloitte

NUTM has been an integral part of my career trajectory. The intensity of the program, program structure, faculty engagement, and opportunity for entrepreneurial pursuit provided immense opportunities for me. Specifically, it strengthened my focus on my current career alignment and continues to influence my pursuits to date. My navigation from investment banking at Blackbit to industry strategist at Deloitte today has been sharpened and solidified by my learnings and experiences during my postgraduate studies at NUTM. Now, as an industry strategist at Deloitte, I leverage the invaluable insights and expertise gained, shaping the future of businesses in Africa and the world with confidence and clarity.

Emmanuel Nwachukwu

Project Engineer, Nigeria LNG

NUTM peeled back layers to reveal Africa's rich heritage, its unique complexities, and the vast opportunities to address its challenges. I now tackle problems with a systems thinking approach, communicate my ideas more effectively, and I am driven by an unparalleled passion for Africa. Reflecting on my journey, it's clear that NUTM marks a watershed moment in my life, transforming my perspective and approach to creating meaningful impact.

Tiana Okere

Founder, MyStash

The Nigerian University of Technology and Management was my launchpad into the world of innovation and problem-solving. As a former educator turned fintech entrepreneur at MyStash, every lesson learned within those university walls echoes in the solutions we create today. Partnering with industry giants like Plaid and Stripe, and processing over $4 million in annual inflows, stand as testament to the transformative education and unwavering support I received. In addition, a significant milestone we've recorded at MyStash is being partly acquired by Princeps Africa, which is a reminder of the limitless possibilities seeded by my alma mater.

Bolu Omotayo

Founder, Gamp

NUTM was the perfect choice for my postgraduate journey. The invaluable assets of its curriculum and community stood out for me. The curriculum addressed my knowledge gaps, and the community's introductions helped me secure VC capital quickly. Even now, I continue to lean on NUTM's supportive network, and without fail, they consistently exceed my expectations in offering assistance.
