Lagos Business School (LBS) is delighted to announce that it recently received the second and final part of a pledged donation. The generous donation was given by the Onosode family on behalf of the Gamaliel and Susan Onosode Foundation (GAMSU), a not-for-profit and non-political organisation whose objective is to foster the success of the Nigerian Child through innovative and flexible learning opportunities while providing the enabling environment.
This donation will go towards the building of the International Management Research Centre (IMRC), which will be used for the School’s research activities. To honour the family for their benevolence, the IMRC building will be named “The Gamaliel Onosode Management Research Centre” after the late Gamaliel Onosode.
Dean of LBS, Dr Enase Okonedo, expressed gratitude to the Onosode family for their donation. Okonedo stated that “the donation will foster LBS’ objective of conducting relevant research that impacts corporations and the society. Late Gamaliel Onosode was an exemplar in the practice of management; he embodied the values we promote here at the School and we are indeed grateful to his family for making this contribution in honour of their father.”
Mr Ese Gamaliel Onosode stated that the reason for bestowing the generous donation which was pledged in 2016 to Lagos Business School is because LBS is committed to improving the quality of management in Africa, and they are positive that a management research centre in honour of Gamaliel Onosode will advance the quality of education of potential leaders and continue his commitment to the advancement of excellence.
Lagos Business School is grateful to GAMSU and the Onosode family for their generous donation as this will aid our vision of developing responsible leaders for Africa and the rest of the world.
