What Utiva represents

  • We are helping employers and companies across the world build the best and most productive talents right from Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Helping university students and recent graduates build the right skills, knowledge, competencies and capacity for the global job market.

Our Belief: The only way African businesses can compete globally is to have highly competent labor forces equipped to increase productivity. As a company, we believe that the next generation of professionals, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs must be prepared for the changing business landscape using a different approach to learning.
Utiva combines an online learning experience with traditional classroom training to deliver value to our students (Utivans). By online learning, we mean soft-touch technology, social learning and computational science using web-based and Android-powered tools to deliver knowledge to our clients.

We are the future of human capital development in Sub-Saharan Africa

Our model "integrates online with traditional face-to-face class activities in a planned, pedagogically valuable manner to train undergrads for the future of work and business."
