For the 11th consecutive time, the Lagos Business School has maintained a spot on the ranking of top business and management education providers in the world done by Financial Times (FT).
The Lagos Business School is one of only four schools in Africa that made the prestigious list.
FT’s Executive Education 2017 ranking published in London says LBS ranks among the most prestigious business schools globally in two categories: open enrolment and customs executive education.
The Financial Times of London publishes annually a list of the best management programmes from business schools around the world, based on the quality of learning, staff and student diversity, growth in business and international reach.
Other schools that made this year’s ranking apart from Lagos Business School were the Harvard Business School, USA, the IESE Business School, Spain, and IMD in Switzerland.
Others in Africa were the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), USB Executive Development and Graduate School of Business, all in South Africa.
Commenting on this, the Dean of LBS, Dr Enase Okonedo, reiterated the commitment of the school to providing global standard business and management education.
She said, “The FT ranking is in further recognition of our continuous efforts at providing world class business and management education with local relevance to Nigeria and Africa.
“Our business school’s determination for excellence has also recently been recognized by our accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the association of MBA’s (AMBA).”
Dr Okonedo also added that as part of plans to extend the benefit of LBS education to other Africans, the school had been admitting more non-Nigerian nationals to its programmes, and would also be extending its executive education to other African countries.
