UBA unveils 30-student campus ambassadors
The 30 students, made up of 17 males and 13 females, chosen from various tertiary institutions across the country, were selected based on a number of carefully defined criteria, including clear leadership and creative skills, as well as the keen ability to promote the bank’s brand.
UBA’s Campus Ambassador Programme is the lender’s initiative to identify young emerging leaders from tertiary institutions across the country and give them a unique and highly rewarding learning experience while also grooming them to be effectual leaders in their societies and country at large.
The programme is also an opportunity for the bank to give back to students who remain a core component of the bank’s legacy.
The Group Head, Digital and Consumer Banking, UBA, Anant Rao, who spoke at the unveiling ceremony, held at the bank’s Head Office in Lagos, explained that the UBA Campus Ambassador programme offered a unique opportunity to students of tertiary institutions in Nigeria to be part of a dynamic and forward-thinking institution by representing the brand both within and outside the campus.
He noted that the programme is designed to be a win-win for both the students and the bank as it presents a learning experience and a highly rewarding pursuit for selected students, while providing them with a platform to display their leadership capabilities and showcase their diverse talents which will in turn drive further growth to the bank.
“We are glad because since we began this programme a few years ago, the narrative has indeed changed.
We are now seen as a bank for the young and vibrant and we have been able to develop leadership skills, creativity among the youth.
“We believe that the youths are the future of every country so we selected the best from the universities to collaborate with them to build their leadership skills and creative skills so that they can be better leaders in the future, whether they choose to operate in the public sector or the private sector,” he said.
UBA’s Head Retail Liabilities, Tomiwa Sotiloye, explained that the students will undergo necessary training and will be expected to execute specific projects meant to add value to the environments. This, he added, will help the students to understand intently all that is expected of them as brand ambassadors of the bank.
He thereafter charged them to be good leaders and positive influencers who should stand out by ensuring that the bank’s reputation soars high in their respective campuses and beyond.
