The Igbo apprenticeship system has passed the first phase of editorial work to feature on Harvard publication.
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.
He added that there are more phases to go before the IAS will be published by Harvard Business Review.
He tweeted: “The Igbo Apprenticeship System work has passed the first phase of editorial work at Harvard. We have more phases to go, but everything is looking fine. Due to the nature of the topic, it is taking time.”
Back in September 2020, it was announced that Harvard Business Review (HBR) editors have approved the proposed work on the Igbo Apprenticeship System (IAS).
The aim of this publication is to document the African business framework that has produced multiple millionaires.
Professor Ekekwe, who has been writing for Harvard Business Review for 10 years, stated that “the Igbo Apprenticeship System has frameworks which could be adapted, for the rise of all” and it has “everything the world is looking for to reduce inequality.”
