Seventeen 2016 graduates of Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management from Covenant University have been inducted as Associates of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPMN) a few weeks after their graduation from the University.
The event, which held recently at the Civic Centre in Lagos, also saw them awarded the Human Resource Practitioners License, described as a testament to the quality of education received from the faculty of the programme.
The CIPMN has an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University that seeks to ensure that students of Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management become professionally certified just at the nick of their graduation from school.
An associate of the institute, Dr. OlumuyiwaOludayo, who is also the Director of African Leadership Development Centre of Covenant University and immediate past Registrar of the University, said the partnership with CIPMN began in 2015 and has budded with great proofs. He said 21 students passed the final exams out of a total of 23 who sat for the August 2016 diet, but only 17 were available for the induction. “This success is a testament to a forward thinking institute. This is a testament to quality education being offered at Covenant University,” said Dr. Oludayo.
The induction event was also graced by two faculty members from the Department of Business Management, which houses the Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management programme, Dr. AnthoniaAdeniji and Mr. Hezekiah Falola.
Expressing her joy at the development, Miss Unini Mosimabale, the best graduating student in Human Resource Management from Covenant University in 2016, said she felt proud of having added value to herself and looks forward to adding value to someone else someday as she pursues a great career in Human Resource Management.
