ExxonMobil Nigeria has empowered final year Medical students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Idiaraba with 300 books on Personal Business Plan to boost their future goals.
Speaking at the occasion held at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Idiaraba, the Managing Director , TOMEB Foundation, (youth development and empowerment foundation ) Mr Tunde Popoola said: “The initiative is to enrich students goals beyond their calling.”
He said that TOMEB is sensitising the final year students on why it is important for them to plan for their lives. People who are successful, succeed because they have an idea of the future and planned for it.
As an entrepreneurial expert, Popoola said that the book will help the final year medical students conduct research on entrepreneurial activities in Nigeria and world over.
“We do a lots in terms of entrepreneurship. Our main focus is on research. We represent Nigeria at the body of researchers all over the world called ‘Global Entrepreneur Monitor’, GEM.” We monitor entrepreneurial research in universities and other places to render assistance where necessary.”
His words: “Harvard University research has shown that those who set goals earn more than those who do not. When MBA graduates were asked if they have set clear, written goals for their future and make plans to achieve them, 3 per cent had written goals and plans; 13 per cent had goals but not written; 84 per cent had no specific goals at all.” He urged students to be hungry of success.
