More tech at IUM

International chipmaker Intel is to work with Namibia’s International University of Management (IUM) in a collaboration which will give the university’s 8000 students the opportunity to access high-quality content on their computing devices.Launching the programme, Vice Chancellor Mrs Virginia Namwandi and Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Earle Taylor said they were “extremely excited” that IUM’s students would have access to modern technology, including entrepreneurship content, which would better equip them for their lives both in and outside the university.Namwandi said skills development was high on the agenda in Namibia, and the collaboration would play an important role in growing young entrepreneurs. “Skills shortages are the main hindrance in sustainable economic growth,” she said, adding that access to technology would significantly boost IUM students become the business leaders of tomorrow.The newly-launched programme offers students the choice of four computing devices, with free access to Intel’s Easy Steps programme, a basic technology literacy and entrepreneurship education program for students.
