LUCT - Breaking News

Following what I call a “special issue,” of my local newspaper, Lesotho Times, I saw a need to bring a new thought to the subject the paper had written in more than five articles.

Robert Kiyosaki, in his book, “Rich Kid, Smart Kid,” highlights some of the fundamentals of the new order of the day. He confirms that, in the Industrial Age, the rules were go to school, get good grades, find a safe, secure job with benefits, and stay there all your life. After twenty years or so you retire, and the company and the government take care of you for the rest of your life.

We are in the Information Age and the rules have changed. The rules now are go to school, get good grades, find a job, and then retrain yourself for that job. Find a new company and a new job and retrain. Find a new company and a new job and retrain, and hope and pray you have enough money set aside to last you much longer than age sixty-five because you will live well beyond the age of sixty-five.

The mentality of the paper exposes the kind of thinking we have in our society, the Industrial Age thinking. LUCT is geared to a much better process, transforming the thinking of the individuals and equipping them to use their creative skills to make a living.

Kiyosaki adds that, in the Information Age, the people who make the big bucks are the athletes, actors, and musicians, the guys with creative and innovative skills. Many of the doctors and other professional people are actually making less than they did in the Industrial Age.

Besides, instead of hoping to find a good job with a big company, more and more students are starting their own businesses in their dorm rooms. LUCT even has a special office –The Limkokwing Entrepreneurship Acceleration Platform- that assists students in developing their incubator businesses—touted as a way to help them build their businesses.

The question is, what does the plight of the institution have to do with the paper?

Here are the links to some articles that show how best LUCT students Lesotho can go:
