An International Open University 1mas scholarship graduate who completed the Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) has received an unconditional offer to the MBA program at Unicaf University, Malawi

Br. Dines Uthman Kabota from the southern Malawi district of Zomba said, "After completion of BBA in February 2020, I had a wish to further my studies by doing an MBA. I decided to apply to a University in Malawi that offers both traditional and online studies. I sent my application to UNICAF. They responded by saying that they will consider my application when I get a copy of my bachelor’s degree. When I received my degree in September 2021, I formally sent my application to UNICAF. The application included a recommendation letter, curriculum vitae, a copy of the degree, a copy of an official transcript, a personal statement (500 words), and personal identification.

Alhamdulillah, on 22 October 2021, I received the good news that the University has unconditionally offered me the opportunity to study for an MBA with them. They even called me so that they verify my transcript with IOU to ensure its authenticity."

We wish Br. Dines Uthman Kabota all the best in his future endeavors and pray for his success.
