Goodson Chizaka - Winner of Top Paper Award in Project Management, studied at Pact College
Big organisations now seek to recruit ABE graduates who are much more effective when performing tasks.
Goodson obtained a certificate in primary teaching before switching his expertise to business management in 2018 and is currently working in the insurance sector. Here is his story:
"I am from Balaka, Malawi, born to a family of five where I have four older sisters. It was in my mother's heart to see her last baby boy excelling in studies, however, she could not raise funds for my education, behoving me sincerely to God for taking me this far through well-wishing organisations and individuals.
I was convinced to pursue businesses management with ABE through their good reputation in terms of accreditation and recognition internationally. It is flexible when studying so that you have time to do other things like working. Well qualified and results-oriented lecturers fascinated me to pursue my business management course at PACT College in Malawi.
Several ABE students in Malawi study whilst working. The practical skills and knowledge imparted brings changes in communities and organizations. Over a long period, it impressed many employers and the public and helped to develop a positive attitude towards ABE qualifications. Big organisations now seek to recruit ABE graduates who are much more effective when performing tasks.
My immediate plan after level 6 is to study for a Bachelors degree and then graduate with a Masters degree in the same field. However, I put all in God's hands who holds my tomorrow.
The best thing about ABE is gratification, they are also agile in nature to address all students' needs as soon as possible, hence a reliable board for serious scholars.
I have acquired competent professional skills from ABE which I have used to positively impact my current company. Teamwork skills, resilience and adaptability combined with a fragile and dynamic working environment motivated my boss to trust me with upper-level tasks.
ABE holds a better position to make you excel. Just be focused, work hard and make sure you utilise all resources at your disposal. Some are readily available online.
My long-term plan is to be the most senior officer at a strategic level of my own company or agency and to apply all acquired skills and knowledge to change that particular company for the better."
