Knutsford University College
The need for quality and relevant education in the growth and development of any civil society and industry cannot be over emphasized. It is becoming more and more very imperative now than ever and would be even more challenging in the future. Some of the greatest challenges facing the world today in this twenty-first century include the persistent high global unemployment rate among university graduates, especially in the developing countries, the severe global competition facing businesses and political economies, the high rise of corruption, poverty and immoral conducts of government officials and civil society, leadership and political struggles of nations. The twenty-first century university education must therefore be one of a difference. The education today must address the above human and technological complexities. We must provide content that is not only concerned or limited to the acquisition of knowledge, skills and abilities, but more importantly the application of these to human and material growth, development and wellbeing. Modern quality education is needed to prepare graduates for service, for work, for leadership, entrepreneurship and innovative ventures. Our graduates must provide solutions to solve industry and societal challenges and to improve the quality of life. These thoughts are the objects on which Knutsford University College was established. The University College was established to develop the relevant talents needed for life development.
The main aim of the College is to produce competent graduates to deal with the current and emerging complexities in industry and in their communities. Graduates are expected to recognise opportunities and develop appropriate business solutions that seek to address a particular issue.
