CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University is partnering with Charles Winnsboro Corporation to provide career development courses to African professionals.
The fully online offerings will begin in January 2022. The first two courses available to students will be graduate courses from Campbellsville University’s School of Business, Economics and Technology titled Project Management and Information Systems Infrastructure. Students will receive a certificate upon completion of the courses.
Dr. Donna Hedgepath, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said, “The courses are designed to provide students foundational concepts and understanding that will prepare them to continue their education or move into the workforce.
“These courses are for-credit courses, which means that they are graduate level courses that can be transferred into a graduate degree program. This is a great partnership and provides Campbellsville University the opportunity to continue expanding its global reach.”
Jude Chidi Ogene, founder and CEO of Charles Winnsboro said, “We are excited to partner with Campbellsville University to bring these programs to sub-Saharan Africa. Nigerians and other Africans are keenly interested in upskilling and reskilling to join the global workforce and to exploit opportunities for remote work and/or relocation. Campbellsville’s programs will give them the opportunity to do just that.”
