Herbert Wigwe, co-founder of Nigeria’s biggest bank by assets, is investing in a new $500 million university to help build skills needed for the finance and technology industries in Africa’s most-populous nation.

The scholars will be able to chose management, science and engineering, information technology and creative arts courses. The institution will need as much as $500 million to scale up in five years, he said.
