Midlands State University is a university in Zimbabwe, established in 2000. It used to be a teacher’s college, which now offers degrees mainly in the commercial and arts sectors. The commercial degrees are crafted from the University of South Africa curriculum, and specialization is available in different fields such as accounting, finance, quantitative analysis, marketing, business management, etc. Overall, there are seven faculties: Arts, Commerce, Education, Law, Natural Resources Management and Agriculture, Science and Technology and Social Sciences. The institution strives to become a university with ten faculties by 2015, while it has also taken steps to strengthen its degree programs by the flexible packaging of modules, allowing students to make themselves more employable.

The ultimate goal of MSU is to establish a University with ten faculties by 2015. To date the University offers degree programmes in seven faculties. These are Arts, Commerce, Education, Law, Natural Resources Management and Agriculture, Science and Technology and Social Sciences.

The degree programmes on offer have been strengthened through flexible packaging of modules. Flexible packaging allows students studying for a particular degree to make themselves more marketable by including in this package of studies modules "shopped" from other programmes. This is a new method of teaching and learning in Universities which is meant to satisfy the specific requirements of the students and their chosen professions. The packaging of modules dissolves the regimentalisation of the older educational curricular, hence students become out flexible and well equipped for the special needs and diversity of the actual world of work. The main purpose of flexible packaging is to enable students to overcome professional rigidity so that they can respond positively to new situations, possibilities and challenges of industry, especially within the rapid changes dictated by new technologies and economic environments.
