Historical and contemporary studies have shown that higher education serves as an integral component for an individual’s entry into the modern sectors of national economies. Education is also widely viewed as a universal right, particularly in developing countries. However, developing countries struggle to establish, encourage and increase school enrollment among their youth, particularly at the tertiary education level - where the greatest constriction on enrollment occurs.
Worldwide, less than one-fifth of those between age18–24 years were engaged in some form of tertiary education at the turn of the 21st century.

The Board aims to provide an educational environment that nurtures successful graduates who can think critically and are competitive in the local, regional, and international world of work.
