As an arm of the University, the Centre is established to promote teaching and research in entrepreneurship and innovation, and to provide training in skills acquisitions to all undergraduate students. The Centre also aims at creating university-private sector collaboration, and direct relevance of the university to its environment and society at large.
The main function of the Centre is to coordinate internship / skills acquisition programme for all undergraduate students. There is, also, a plan to extend this programme to members of staff of the University and the community at large. In addition, the Centre engages in organizing workshops and seminars for students, staff and surrounding community members to develop them entrepreneurially.
