Lagos Business School (LBS)
Lagos Business School aims at providing experienced professional managers with high quality general management education relevant to the Nigerian business environment. The institution began in 1991 as the Centre for Professional Communications, and later changed its name to Lagos Business School in 1992.
The School delivers executive programmes at top and middle management levels aimed at systematically improving the practice of management in Nigeria. LBS offers a wide spectrum of open-enrolment seminars on essential issues in business for business leaders and managers. Customised in-company seminars are also arranged for companies who need to train large groups of staff in a particular area. Delivered in purpose-built learning facilities, LBS programmes attract over 3,000 participants from multinational and indigenous companies yearly.
Executive education at LBS is comprehensive, drawing from the experiences of multinational faculty and participants. Our system of teaching ensures that participants gain management knowledge and skills, by employing the case-study method and group-work approach to learning. We believe in learning by doing.
At LBS (as in the rest of the University), the fundamental inspiration is provided by the Christian vision of man, society and economic activity. The Prelature of Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church, takes responsibility for guaranteeing that this vision underlies all teaching, publishing and research activities of the School.
The School places a premium on maintaining a very keen relationship with the corporate clientele it serves. Constant interaction with participating organisations, a committed corporate support group of 70 companies, plus counsel and support rendered by the School's distinguished Advisory Board play major roles in securing this linkage.
In January 2002, the Federal Government granted approval for the establishment of Pan-African University and the Lagos Business School thus became the first school of the University. The School offers Executive MBA, MBA and doctoral programmesin addition to its excellent executive education programmes.
