As part of its mission to develop responsible leaders for Africa and the world, Lagos Business School (LBS) has announced the introduction of its Executive in Residence (EiR) Scheme, which commenced in April 2019.
A statement from the respected institution explained that the EiR Scheme is a volunteer programme that seeks to provide an opportunity for executives of leading Nigerian corporations and multinationals to share their vast knowledge and experience with participants on LBS C-suite executive programmes.
Executives who partake in the scheme will be available on the LBS campus at least twice a month and will facilitate open and custom Executive Education programmes, lead alumni sessions, provide mentorship and counselling to participants, collaborate with faculty in case study development, deliver guest lectures on the MBA programmes, among other responsibilities.
The EiR scheme began with two senior executives; Mr Olaniyi Yusuf, who is currently a Managing Partner at Verraki Partners and former Country Director at Accenture, and Mr Emmanuel Imafidon, who was Director of Business Services at Chevron Nigeria Limited up until 2018.
The executives provided professional advice to participants and actively took part in student-led conferences and other related activities.
The scheme is in the continuance of LBS’ missional imperative to significantly impact on management knowledge in Nigeria and Africa.
