Addis Ababa, Ethiopia -Ã‚Â Zemen Development and Management Institute (ZDMI), a Higher Education institute in Addis Ababa is set to have the first official graduation inÃ‚Â Master of Business AdministrationÃ‚Â (MBA) and an International Diploma in Project Management (IDPM) on November 24, 2012.Ã‚Â The programs were conducted in a joint cross boundary education by Zemen in partnership with Cambridge International College (CIC) and Castle College Nottingham in the UK.
The MBA program takes two years to complete but students would be allowed to extend their study periods up to three years if they are forced to interrupt their studies. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Since this is international education, it is possible for mobile students to continue their studies in the new country contacting local CIC representatives available in many countries,Ã¢â‚¬Â Solomon said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Nothing brings change in a country like ours except through education. Bearing this in mind, we established Zemen (ZDMI) in June 2008. Exactly four months after the kick off, in October 2008 Zemen signed agreement with Nottingham International College to deliver an InternationalÃ‚Â DiplomaÃ‚Â in Project Management (IDPM) which is validated by the University of Cambridge-International Examinations (CIE). Since then, we had been exerting all efforts to deliver quality education for our students,Ã¢â‚¬Â Solomon Seleshi, Director General of ZDMI told Capital. Read complete story on the Capital.
