Malawi Institute of Management in talks for accreditation with NCHE

The Malawi Institute of Management (MIM) is discussing with the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) to get accreditation.

MIM board chairman Michael Kamphambe Nkhoma confirmed the development in an interview, saying  once the discussions prove fruitful Malawians would be assured that their programmes and courses meet national standards.

“In fact, the institute plans to introduce its own accredited programmes as soon as the process of institutional accreditation is completed,” he said.

Kamphambe said the discussions are important because they will help in finding ways to ensure that their programmes meet the minimum standard of NCHE.

According to Kamphambe their programmes are based on market demands and trends because the institute regularly conducts market surveys which inform annual programming.

He further revealed that MIM will soon open a centre in Blantyre to make it convenient for Blantyre students.

“It is our conviction that in this way, we will help increase access to quality education and training as students and course participants from Blantyre and the surrounding areas will not be spending time and money to travel to Lilongwe to access our programmes,” he explained.

He explained that MIM’s selection of partner universities is through and based on many factors including their position on the list of universities in the United Kingdom and their willingness to work with international partners and students.

“We look at our partner’s flexibility to listen to local needs on the market in other words, these universities are true partners to MIM,” he said.

The Malawi Institute of Management is one of the institutions called Management Development Institutes (MDIs) in Africa. Many of these MDI’s were created by Governments after gaining political independence.

The role of MDI’s is to provide leadership and management training, consultancy and research.

  5. ujeni says:

    You are talking of people in Blantyre, you mean there are no people too in Mzuzu. This institutional marginalisation should stop now, enough is enough of this nonsense

      Livingstonia University is not enough in Wakwithu land? Only 10% of population, you can not demand every thing on regional basis, market forces yakana. When the demand to sustain buzness is there, then naturally these things will gravitate to Nyika republic. Wanva munganya iwe?

      1. master says:

        wakwithu,
