The London-based Economist magazine has listed the Lagos Business School (LBS), Lekki, Lagos as one of the best global 50 institutions of higher learning offering Executive MBA programme in the world.
In the Economist 2018 ranking released, the LBS Executive MBA programme ranks 48th out of a total of 65 schools featured and the only one from Africa to be listed among the top 50. The Magazine had considered two broad measures; personal development/educational experience and career development.
At a news conference in Lagos, the Dean, LBS, Dr. Enase Okonedo described the feat as outstanding because according to him, the ranking is an indication that the corporate world recognises the value of an EMBA qualification from the School.
“This is a testament of the high quality of business and management education which we offer at the School and a result of our consistent and conscientious hard work,” he said.
The Director, MBA, Lagos Business School, Dr. Uchenna Uzo, noted that, “We are pleased that our work here at LBS is being acknowledged across the globe.”
Uzo added other top institutions featured in The Economist magazine’s 2018 EMBA rankinginclude the Yale School of Management, and Arizona State University with whom the Lagos Business School has just entered into a strategic partnership for the International Accelerated Degree Programme (IADP).
