Malawi Institute of Management (MIM) has advised educated Malawians to embrace entrepreneurship to avert some of the social and economic hardships citizens are facing due to lack of employment opportunities.
MIM board chairperson Rhoda Misomali made the call in Lilongwe on Friday during the first graduation of Cyprus Institute of Management (CIM).
MIM partnered CIM to expand and diversify its programmes portfolio and to effectively respond to the training needs of Malawians.
Misomali said CIM offers internationally respected business programmes which can enable learners to improve entrepreneurial endeavors.
She said: “Entrepreneurship is about turning ideas into reality while generating income. This is critical for Malawi as a developing nation.”
CIM representative Dr Austine Owen Luhanga said the institution is committed to providing quality degrees at affordable costs as part of its contribution to making higher education accessible to many Malawians.
However, Luhanga cautioned the graduates against laziness, saying such behaviours will send a bad image of higher education.
