The campus has since resumed with stringent rules and guide lines set including compulsory temperature checks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Only the final year classes have been allowed to return to class the rest are still supported via online platforms. The Institute of Development Management offers both long and short term training programmes and has released its July/August training courses.
Programs offered include change management which is very relevant in the era of COVID-19 that has changed all businesses and modus operandi across the globe. The change management courses look at the emergent global natural / health / IT phenomena which require that organizations should be responsive to the probable changes that are likely to be experienced. As such there is a need for organizations to be able to re-design core business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity, cycle times and quality.
The campus is currently also training EUDF in BAA COVID-19 training for a period of 5 weeks on campus. The student representative council has also been equipped with the skills to train the student body on COVID-19 guidelines as classes resume. Training will be done frequently to ensure adherence to the set rules to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
