The TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship is intended to provide additional financial support to help African students bridge some of the financial burden attached to taking on MBA programmes, it will not be enough to act as the primary source of funding for these programmes.
In December 2008, the TY Danjuma Foundation was created in Nigeria. The foundation’s principal aims are to provide durable advantages through the implementation of development programs. For Danjuma, the idea of setting up a foundation came when he turned 70, after he had done some research and discovered that the concept of foundations dated back to the Ottoman Empire when wealthy individuals set up philanthropic organizations to give back to the community.
