    Undergraduate Internships and College Externships for OCENT Students
    At OCENT, you discover what you want out of your career by expanding your network and building on your experiences in the classroom and in the real world.

    What Are Internships and Externships?
    College internships and externships are an important stepping stone on your career journey.

Our resources, including providing access to various networking opportunities and growth tools, are here to supplement that drive and support our students as they explore the career avenues that interest them.

    Additionally, experiential learning, or hands-on learning, is baked into what we teach at OCENT, and internship and externships are a big part of that. Because of that, we want to ensure you pursue the opportunities and industries that interest and challenge you the most. We have specific courses and programs that are designed so you can excel while you figure out your professional passions and build marketable skills.

    Career Exploration Lab

    Our Objectives

    The principal objective of the Open College of Entrepreneurship is to provide tertiary education of high quality in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management through campus taught programmes, distance learning, virtual learning and affiliation on-campus courses, so as to redefine and formalise Entrepreneurship Education in Nigeria.

    Our Mission

    To prepare students for a successful and meaningful life and career in the 21st century – with a shared vision for a better Africa.

    To be a trailblazing provider of quality entrepreneurship education, by raising its standard as the key to a more productive and sustainable development of Africans, through globally-acceptable best practices.

    To create a more prosperous and peaceful Africa by developing the next generation of ethical and entrepreneurial African leaders.

    OCENT serves as a platform and coordinator of preparations of the academic content and the implementation of global college activities, inspired by the vision of linking entrepreneurship and technology in innovative ways.

    Education goals

    To prepare students to excel in the real world

    To enhance students’ learning by providing a holistic educational experience

    To be a fair and caring employer providing equal opportunities for all

    To be a socially responsible, ethical and accountable institution.

    OUR APPROACH

    At OCENT, we resist the pressure to conduct entrepreneurship education the way it has always been done. We challenge existing beliefs so that we only keep what works, and reimagine the rest.

    OCENT goes above and beyond to provide you with an education like no other. We focus on giving you a holistic experience designed to make you a successful entrepreneur, leader and a better citizen of the world. OCENT has identified several fundamental strategies that make our approach to teaching and learning unique, relevant and engaging

    Preparation for Tomorrow’s World

    We prepare you for jobs that don’t even exist yet. In an ever-changing world, narrow academic theory quickly loses relevance. Therefore we go beyond just giving you a solid academic grounding. We also develop skills like leadership, critical thinking, problem solving, quantitative reasoning, communication and teamwork—skills that will always be relevant for the jobs of tomorrow.

    Engaging Learning Experience

    A revolutionary style of teaching and learning. We employ the most innovative and effective methods of teaching and learning. For example, sometimes we ban lectures. Instead, you drive your own learning in a self-paced way and learn from your peers. When you attend class, you will meet an expert facilitator who engages you in lively debates, discussions, and applications of the knowledge you have learned on your own and with peers. You will ‘learn how to learn’ in an effective and engaging way. .

    Entrepreneurial Leadership

    Develop entrepreneurial skills and mindsets. We believe every graduate in the 21st century should be able to think entrepreneurially. Therefore, you learn the habits that make great entrepreneurs—how to solve big problems with limited resources, how to think innovatively, how to form and lead teams, and how to dream big—in whatever field you go into.

    Declare a Mission for Your Life

    We will challenge you to declare a “mission” for your life, and not just to select an academic “major”. We will expose you to the grand challenges and opportunities of our time, and work with you to define how you want to solve these problems and capture emerging opportunities. In this way, you will discover your life’s purpose and align your learning with this purpose.

    Education Meets the Real World

    The real world comes to the classroom. We break down barriers between universities and the real world. You will solve real problems for real organizations from day one. We design our curriculum with employers. And each year, in our undergraduate programmes, you spend eight months on campus and four months in the workplace by the time you graduate. .

    A Student Driven Experience

    We empower you to be the driving force behind your undergraduate experience. You and your peers have the power to design your extra-curricular activities, and are supported to launch your own ventures, engage in local communities, and participate in our Skills Acquisition and Enterprise Creation (SAEC) programme..

    Pan-African and Global Network

    At OCENT, we believe that creativity is fostered by experience and exposure, and as such we bring together students and staff from diverse backgrounds to live, study, and play together in a rich, vibrant community where different cultures are respected and celebrated. You form deep bonds with inspiring classmates and graduate with a powerful, global network for life .
