4 Reaons to Enroll Today

Reason #1: Enormous Flexibility

Online education requires a very different approach to developing the future scholars. Unfortunately, most universities force working professionals into rigid structures. At Transcontinental University, we understand the challenges facing the aspiring African scholars.  After working with hundreds of doctoral students, we have designed ample flexibility:

  • Meaningful: Personalized learning experience between you and the professor 
  • Life Balance: You design the schedule that fits your needs, balancing work, personal and academics
  • Empowerment: Your passion and ideas are supported through the dissertation research, not driven by professors

Reason #2: Go beyond the regurgitation of theory

The current challenging times highlight the ineffectiveness of many theories in practice across every nation.  When we look at most universities in Africa, they continue to use Western theories and textbooks in almost every program. This is one of the primary barriers for Africa’s development as a leader. 

Transcontinental University is specifically designed for critically assessing existing theories and creating new theories. We see a nation full of potential, ready to lead the rest of Africa with authentic theories that mirror the cultural values of the nation.

Let’s create ground breaking theories so that our children will have African theories and textbooks to learn from!
