Chanthunya was speaking Thursday in Blantyre during the fifth congregation of the university where 260 candidates graduated in different programmes.
Chanthunya said the university is pleased with how government, non-governmental organisations and other companies are employing its graduates, in a country with high unemployment rate.
“We are grateful to the companies and the government for giving our graduates a chance to show their skills by offering them jobs in different sectors,” Chanthunya said.
Concurring with Chanthunya, guest of honor for the event Managing Director of EcoBank ,Charles Asiedu, said students from BIU have proven that the university has qualified lecturers.
“I have about five employees who were at BIU and when I checked their performance with the Human Resource Manager at my company, I was told that they are among the best employees that we have. I have to commend the Chancellor and your staff for the good work,” said Asiedu.
Asiedu, however, advised the graduates to continue with the hardworking spirit that has helped them attain the degrees.
One of the graduating students Kwanu Kumwenda attributed her success to hard work and fear of the Lord.
