Around 500 Alumni who attended the training were trained on included, introduction to online marketing, content marketing, traditional Vs. digital Media, introduction to Search Engine Optimization, introduction to Paid Advertising, Web Design and Social Media Marketing.

The Alumni Association Chairperson, Ms. Dorothy Sagwe urged Alumni to connect with the Association and notify the team of ways in which they would like to be engaged in. She reiterated the need for them to register on the Alumni section found on the USIU-Africa website as members of the Association.

Speaking during the event, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Paul Zeleza welcomed Alumni to USIU-Africa and urged them to continually engage with their Alma Mater.


"For most parts of one's life, career and business, growth is driven through the acquisition of diverse skills, experiences, networks and exposures that largely cannot be gained from routine everyday engagements. External activities and engagements step in to fill this void. Volunteering has been an answer for many. Legacies and communities have been built on volunteer engagements.
The USIU Alumni Association provides a key platform for those looking for such personal, career and business growth that is complemented by community engagement."
