This means that, once it passes the other stages of editing, a documentation of our local Igbo apprenticeship system (IAS) will be published in the Harvard Business Review (HBR) and made available for all to study.

Professor Ndubuisi Ekekwe, founder and president of the African Institute of Technology, made this revelation via his Twitter page on Tuesday, February 23.
