Graduation marks milestone for university

THE second batch of students who completed the Professional Diploma in Business Leadership studies at USP's Labasa campus were all smiles after graduating from the program yesterday afternoon.

This marks another milestone for the campus as it aims to bring access and equity to higher education, particularly programs that address human resources development in the Northern Division.

In his address, Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said the graduates were equipped with specific and updated knowledge in cutting edge management and leadership skills.

"The graduates will now be in a better position to assist in the transformation of operational management and accountable leadership in their various organisations," he said.

"The program is now formally part of the PSC qualification framework and requirements for those at senior management and leadership positions.

"I must emphasise on the outset that there are other critical ingredients that must work hand in hand with this qualification in order for graduates to maintain sustainable management and leadership skills."

Mr Bolalevu said qualification and the right attitude towards work were needed in society.
