Utawal T. Envuladu

Abuja FCT, Nigeria

First female master's degree graduate in her town

Utawal Envuladu (MSM '21) is working on a job rotation with a governmental real estate firm which monitors insurance nationwide for employees within her country. While working full time she was encouraged by her family to complete her degree through distance education. She decided to enroll for courses at the University of Management and Technology in order to obtain her Master of Science in Management degree.

“UMT designed lectures in a way that enabled me to easily schedule time to study while also balancing being a full time employee, a mother, a wife, and a member of her community,” she said.

Envuladu also volunteers in her local community as a project officer and planner for a nonprofit organization called Care-Focus, which is a small group that focuses on teaching teenagers about important health preventive measures such as HIV and STI. Care-Focus was founded by the late Mr. Tony Zitta in the late 1990’s. Envuladu even finds time to volunteer in a local community residence group as a financial secretary who sources funds which aid in security and property maintenance.

"I am thankful to Staff and Management of UMT for sharing this part of my education experience with me,” she said, “I hope to aspire for more educational paths as I have realised that education is an interesting learning process.”

Envuladu received a Master of Science in Management degree with a concentration in Project Management in March 2021. She hopes to one day specialize in project management involving general and administrative issues.

"UMT has made me a unique woman in my community; to be the first female graduate with a Master’s Degree from my little hometown."
