The Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria ( ASUU ) has faulted a University in Amsterdam – The Amsterdam Business School for rejecting degrees from Nigeria, whiles accepting degrees from Ghana and South Africa
ASUU said Nigerian graduates have what it takes to compete favourably with their peers from any part of the world.
The reaction of the academic body was triggered by a recent information on the website of The School of Business in Amsterdam University, Netherlands, which said,
“An African bachelor’s degree is generally the equivalent of 2 years of academic education in the Netherlands.”
“For eligibility, applicants with an African bachelor’s degree (except for South-Africa and Ghana) will need a bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in the field of Economics and Business, in order to be eligible for one of our M.Sc programmes.”
The President of Academic Staff Union of Universities of Nigeria, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi indicated that “While we acknowledge that there are great scholars in Ghanaian and South African universities, a close study of leading scholars in universities in the two countries will reveal a heavy presence of Nigerian academics.”
