  • Lagos Business School maintains Financial Times Ranking as Top Business School

    Lagos Business School has once again been ranked as a top global school by the Financial Times (FT).  This is LBS’ eleventh consecutive appearance in the annual ranking of top business and management education providers in the world done by FT.

    According to the FT’s Executive Education 2017 ranking published today in London, LBS is ranked among the most prestigious business schools globally in two categories: open enrollment and customs executive education. The Lagos Business School is one of only four schools in Africa that made the prestigious list.

    Dean of LBS, Dr Enase Okonedo in her remarks, reiterated the commitment of the School to providing global standard business and management education. “The FT ranking is 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.

    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 are the Harvard Business School, USA, the IESE Business School, Spain, and IMD in Switzerland. Others in Africa include the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), USB Executive Development and Graduate School of Business, all in South Africa.
