24 Year Old Tosin Akingbulu Emerges As Best Graduating Student at the Pan-African University’s SMC



Oluwatosin Akingbulu receives her Award from Dr. Mike Okolo, Dean of the School of Media & Communications, Pan Atlantic University

24-year old Oluwatosin Akingbulu emerged as the Best Graduating Student from the Pan-Atlantic University’s School of Media and Communication (SMC) full-time Masters program.

At the award ceremony which was held at Havilah Events Centre, Oniru, Victoria Island, Oluwatosin was awarded with a degree of  Distinction in Media and Communication, specializing in Media Enterprise.

Four other graduating students, who also excelled in the program, graduating at the top of Oluwatosin Akingbulu 1their respective classes, are: Kasie-Nwachukwu Ogechi (MSc Part Time 4), Matthew Emmanuel (PGD Community Relations), Obianuju Okafor (PGD Digital Marketing) and Oliseh Kelikume (PGD Journalism).

Tosin shares a bit of her background and the experience thus far: “I had my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at Obafemi Awolowo University. However, my passion for the media led me to take on further study in the field after some stint in media-related roles,” “It was a very rigorous process getting into the program and everyone was really good. A good number of my classmates already had extensive media experience, so I feel very privileged. I’m grateful to God and everyone who has been a part of my SMC experience – my lecturers, classmates and every other person who inspired me in one way or the other.”

BellaNaija congratulates the graduating students and we hope to read more inspiring stories of academic excellence.

      I’ve not been there, but I only hear good reports of the rigour, depth and breadth of the curriculum as well as the actual classes and assignments. Studying at SMC also places you in the midst of a strong and still-growing Alumni network in Nigeria, especially in Lagos. You can find out more by visiting the school and talking to current students and alumni. NB: I have not been paid for this comment, neither am I affiliated to the SMC. #OKBye 🙂

      I am an alumna and I assure you it is money well spent. The learning, the relevance of the classes, the environment, the resources, the networks… You could do a certificate course first to test the waters but whatever you choose is not a waste.

    Dear Dd, the school is fantastic and very credible. I am an alumnus. It is run by the Opus Dei (of the Catholic Church) though admission is irrespective of religious affiliation. The aim is holistic education-good grades aren’t just enough, but they invite you to transform your thinking and your attitude. The facilitators (lecturers) know each student by name because of the small class sizes (15 at most).The School of Media and Communication (SMC), instituted in 2006, is a second school under the Pan-Atlantic University, the first being the prestigious Lagos Business School (LBS). Quite pricey, but you get value for every kobo. SMC offers PGD, Masters and PhD courses and a variety of certificate courses. BSc courses began last October. Please check the website for more information. I hope this helps.
