Midlands State University

Midlands State University is a University in Zimbabwe offering different courses mainly in the commercial and arts sector. The University was previously called Gweru Teachers' College, which was primarily a teacher training college under the University of Zimbabwe. For the first three years, the curriculum was detected by the University of Zimbabwe but now is operating independently.

The commercial degrees are modelled from the University of South Africa curriculum. It offers various degrees in commerce with specialization in different fields such as accounting (Chartered Accountant route), finance, quantitative analysis, marketing, business management, etc.

The main campus is located in Senga area, south east of Gweru central about 15 km (9.3 mi). The road leading to the main campus is poorly developed. It is very close to Fletcher Boys High School, one of the top high schools in terms of academic excellency in Zimbabwe.

Famous quotes containing the words university, midlands and/or state:

    In the United States, it is now possible for a person eighteen years of age, female as well as male, to graduate from high school, college, or university without ever having cared for, or even held, a baby; without ever having comforted or assisted another human being who really needed help. . . . No society can long sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings.
    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)

    Sunday night meant, in the dark, wintry, rainy Midlands ... anywhere where two creatures might stand and squeeze together and spoon.... Spooning was a fine art, whereas kissing and cuddling are calf-processes.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    The United States is a republic, and a republic is a state in which the people are the boss. That means us. And if the big shots in Washington don’t do like we vote, we don’t vote for them, by golly, no more.
    Willis Goldbeck (1900–1979)
