(Incorporated as College of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management Ltd)

---transforming your ideas into viable ventures


Entrepreneurship is at the heart of every business. Every large company started out as a small business, led by an entrepreneur. As our economy becomes more volatile, having the skills and knowledge to start a new business may mean the difference between prosperity and poverty. Entrepreneurial skills are also in demand in established companies. Every business, large or small, must be entrepreneurial just to survive. Innovative thinking has replaced "do it our way" as the rallying cry of the corporation. Students who learn to think independently flourish in chaotic environments and to keep cool under pressure are in high demand. Our programme is designed to build entrepreneurial skills step by step. Renowned experts, not graduate students, teach classes. We embody a “hands-on” philosophy of teaching, putting our students into real-life entrepreneurial situations. Our program is rigorous, challenging, and most of all, fun

The Open College of Entrepreneurship (TOPCENT) is the Africa’s most prestigious and forward-thinking university college of entrepreneurship serving as natural incubator, providing support structures for teachers and students to initiate new ventures: intellectual, commercial and conjoint by contributing and providing leadership for creating entrepreneurial thinking, actions, institutions and entrepreneurship capital. This we do through offering of a powerful formula that does not only equip students with a well-rounded and internationally- relevant entrepreneurship education based on internationally-competitive curriculum, but one which also provides them with extensive practical experience and industry relevant skills required in turning ideas into viable ventures. We call this the “TOPCENT’s Entrepreneurship Effectiveness and Leadership (EE&L) Model” that grooms students to become Future Ready Graduates (FRG).

The Programmes developed by TOPCENT is based on research conducted by African Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ACSBE), The Global Academy of Entrepreneurship and Innovation (GACEINN), and Institute of Classic Entrepreneurship, Nigeria (ICENT). The programmes are unique in that they are practical oriented and are largely driven by real entrepreneurs.


Focus on Skills that Matter
Our Academic Programmes
Internships with Top Employers
Specialisation in at least one Vocation or Trade
A Transformative Student Experience

The programme aims to produce graduates who will have a sound knowledge of entrepreneurship skills, business management, industry specialisation and the leadership qualities needed. The course will focus on the various elements of entrepreneurship and business management. Students will have to choose an industry of their choice for their specialisation and complete a project on their industry specialisation. They will also be guided into transforming their business idea into a product or service for commercialisation. At the end of the Course, students will have with them an OND/HND/B.Ent/M.Ent in Entrepreneurship, an Industry Specialisation Certification, Startup Capital and a real business in their hands. This is the one great difference between our students and their counterparts from other colleges and universities, who will have an academic qualification and nothing else. ’ ’
