The university boss described NIM as a professional body of excellence which provided the platform for management training to the advantage of students upon graduation.

"We want to say that very soon Landmark University will become the hub of university and management excellence when is mentioned globally," she said.

Obayan said that the institution had been re-assured of the commitment of NIM toward honouring the terms and reference of the MOU through its Registrar and Chief Executive, Mr Tony Fadaka.

According to her, Fadaka has reiterated that the Students’ Management Scheme is mooted by NIM as a means of giving students in Universities and Polytechnics the opportunity to imbibe the ideals and values of professional management.

"The opportunity, Fadaka maintained will be useful at the early stage of the students' career development.
