Sterling Bank partners Nexford University to launch scholarship initiative for Nigerian secondary school leavers

Driven by a purpose to enrich lives and promote the quality of education for the average Nigerian youth, Sterling Bank is introducing the “Grow with Sterling” initiative.

Grow with Sterling is a social impact programme that will enable Nigerian Secondary School Leavers further their education under a special partnership arrangement between Sterling and Nexford University.

As a first of its kind, this set of Learners will also have the opportunity to be fully engaged by Sterling under a “Work-Study” arrangement for the duration of their programme with Nexford University.

Below is a clip of Sterling Bank’s MD/CEO speaking to a Nexford University audience about online education and employer needs.

As an employer, I would gladly hire anyone who is a graduate of Nexford. If I didn’t believe in it, I wouldn’t send my employees to undergo courses with the school. Abubakar Suleiman
CEO, Sterling Bank

This scholarship is exclusively for Nigerian Secondary School leavers. For the duration of your Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program, beneficiaries will have the opportunity to join the Sterling team and apply what they are learning.
